#278 wontfix Adaptec 7 series and SATA disks problem somebody szj
Description

Hi,

There is a problem with monitoring SATA disks on Adaptec 7 series. I have identical Seagate SAS drives, Corsair Force GS SSD's and WDC SATA drives connected to Adaptec 6805 and Adaptec 71605 in another machine. All is fine on the machine with the 6805. On the machine with the 71605 the SAS drives work fine, but there is a problem with SATA drives. I tested various versions of smartmontools available in Debian and it's always the same. Smartd refuses to monitor the drives, claiming it can't enable SMART:

smartd[17562]: Device: /dev/sg7 [SAT], opened
smartd[17562]: Device: /dev/sg7 [SAT], WDC WD4000FYYZ-01UL1B0, S/N:WD-WCC130248974, WWN:5-0014ee-25d6165c4, FW:01.01K01, 4.00 TB
smartd[17562]: Device: /dev/sg7 [SAT], found in smartd database: Western Digital RE4 (SATA 6Gb/s)
smartd[17562]: Device: /dev/sg7 [SAT], could not enable SMART capability.

When treated with "smartctl -d sat -a /dev/sg7" it looks pretty normal though:

Please note the test results above - displayed as usal. You cannot however launch the tests with "smartctl -d sat -t long /dev/sg7" - smartctl complains about some badly formed scsi parameters:

Sending command: "Execute SMART Extended self-test routine immediately in off-line mode".
Command "Execute SMART Extended self-test routine immediately in off-line mode" failed: scsi error badly formed scsi parameters

What't more interesting, you can launch the test pretending the disk is SCSI (!?) with "smartctl -d scsi -t long /dev/sg7":

Please wait 1092 minutes for test to complete.

Use smartctl -X to abort test

The test indeed takes place, and you can see the result later on with "smartctl -d sat -a /dev/sg7" (please note "-d sat", not "-d scsi" used to launch the test). Don't think you can check the test result with "smartctl -d scsi -a /dev/sg7" (still "-d scsi" is a must to launch the test) - the command will only display:

Device does not support Self Test logging

I even made a small patch to smartd so that it ignores "could not enable SMART capability" condition and it seems to monitor some attributes for those SATA drives. But unfortunately it will not support scheduling SMART tests for SATA drives.

It is also strange that to manually schedule SMART tests you need to pretend the SATA disks are SCSI and later on query them with smartctl back as regular SATA disks.

#634 wontfix Do not operate on drives which are security locked by password Andreas E
Description

The following is not me, but it's fairly similar: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=178554

scsiModePageOffset: response length too short, resp_len=xx offset=yy bd_len=zz

Well after I got this message when trying to do a smartctl long test, I thought my drive was faulty as this guy's one was, but it was 100% OK.

The actual reason for the "error" was almost to be called hilarious: my drive was security locked! This happened after using security erase (enhanced) via hdparm:

# hdparm --user-master u --security-set-pass /dev/sdc blahdiblah # hdparm --user-master u --security-erase enhanced /dev/sdc blahdiblah

It may be a bug in hdparm that it doesn't always release the lock as soon as it has finished erasing.

Anyways, that "faulty" drive was actually a great drive, and after doing a DISPWD on it via MHDD, it gave me a PERFECT rating on HDD Sentinel.

tl;dr ?

What this enhancement request is about:

  • Do not operate on drives that are security locked by password (makes less sense), instead:
  • Inform the user THAT their drive is security locked and write out something like "Can't operate on this drive - unlock it first" so that the user knows what they're up to.
  • Do not lead the user down the garden path by telling them about a responselength being too short, making them think it's their drive which is at (hardware) fault.
