Generally I've found the SmartMonTools to be amazing - catching
most failures well before data corruption. In the case of IBM
"Deathstars" it nailed a good 8 of them just a week before the
warranty expired - while they still appeared to be working well
and were not yet corrupting data.
Windows machines with SP2 installed mostly will not run SmartD
as a service. I have one computer that appears to be an exception
but starting the SmartD service results in:
"not a valid Win32 app"
The Smart suite (5.33) is deployed via MSI install and has been
working well on Win 2000 and XP clients for over 6 months. But
once SP2 is installed/pushed SmartD fails to start at boot time
with the above error.
An administrator can start the software - the issue is with it
starting as a service.
A web search revealed that this error has also hit some other
software (games) but I've not found any explination or solution.
