A mandatory SMART command failed: exiting. To continue, add one or
more '-T permissive' options.
This is likely a Deskstar 7K160 (HDS721616PLA380) which is already
in the database. The driver identifies this SATA disk as SCSI. On
Windows, this typically happens if the driver provides a RAID
option. Which controller is used?
Please retry with "smartctl -d ata ..." or connect the disk to
another controller if possible.
