Disks behind Adaptec Raid Controller

I can't speak for the non-Linux version, but the Linux version doesn't seem to report on the state of individual drives attached to an Adaptec Raid controller.

I have configured smartd.conf to monitor them:

Code: Select all
/dev/sdb -d aacraid,0,0,0 -n standby -m root -M exec /usr/share/smartmontools/smartd-runner
/dev/sdb -d aacraid,0,0,1 -n standby -m root -M exec /usr/share/smartmontools/smartd-runner
/dev/sdb -d aacraid,0,0,2 -n standby -m root -M exec /usr/share/smartmontools/smartd-runner
/dev/sdb -d aacraid,0,0,3 -n standby -m root -M exec /usr/share/smartmontools/smartd-runner
/dev/sdb -d aacraid,0,0,4 -n standby -m root -M exec /usr/share/smartmontools/smartd-runner
/dev/sdb -d aacraid,0,0,5 -n standby -m root -M exec /usr/share/smartmontools/smartd-runner
/dev/sdb -d aacraid,0,0,6 -n standby -m root -M exec /usr/share/smartmontools/smartd-runner
/dev/sdb -d aacraid,0,0,7 -n standby -m root -M exec /usr/share/smartmontools/smartd-runner


Is this because I need to do something to tell HDSentinel, or is this just not supported?

TIA Dave

Thanks, yes, this is completely normal.

Adaptec RAID controllers are supported in the Windows version only where complete disk status information about SATA and SAS hard disks / SSDs can be detected and displayed without problems.

:( That's a shame - do I understand this is quite tricky to achieve on Linux?

Yes .... The problem is that there are really high number of Linux distributions available and even if things should generally work - there are lots of differences in the drivers used in each of the distributions for such special controllers. So it is possible that things may work on one system - but not on other and under Linux, things are worse to make, debug, examine.

Will examine the possibilities about Adaptec controllers too (as this feature asked by other user too), but it may take some time....

If you need access to an Ubuntu system with an Adaptec Raid (ASR-51245) installed, I can try to drill a hole in my firewall to get you in.
