I have fakeraid set up on a machine that has two Western
Digital hard drives. I’m able to run smartctl –a on an actual
physical disk that is part of the RAID setup (i.e I can run smartctl –a /dev/sdb).
I noticed smartmontools wiki document “Checking disks behind RAID
controllers” and I’m now slightly confused and need to clarify some
- Does the document that I
mentioned earlier include both hardware RAID controllers and fakeraid controllers?
- Should I still be able to access
smart attributes through fakeraid or was the result that I obtained not
reliable? I ask this because the result of the command that I mentioned
earlier was that the “overall-health self-assessment test”
result was a pass, but I notice that in several of the smart attributes,
the threshold values were set to zero, even though there were actual
values for “worst” and “value”.
Thanks for the clarification,
