#121 worksforme smartd fails to report disk failure if a disk doesn't respond anymore Christian Franke kaluscha
Description

I had a self test running on disk hdb:

smartd: Device: /dev/hdb, self-test in progress, 10% remaining

The disk encountered problems, see /var/log/messages:

kernel: hdb: dma_timer_expiry: dma status == 0x61
kernel: hdb: DMA timeout error
kernel: hdb: dma timeout error: status=0xd0 { Busy }
kernel: ide: failed opcode was: unknown
kernel: hda: DMA disabled
kernel: hdb: DMA disabled
kernel: ide0: reset: success

There were several kernel IDE resets until the drive didn't respond anymore:

kernel: hdb: drive not ready for command

smartd wrote messages:

smartd: Device: /dev/hdb, failed to read Temperature

However, smartd had been configured to send e-mails in case of trouble (/dev/hdb -a -I 194 -W 4,40,42 -R 5 -m myamil). In this case, it failed to do so.

In my opinion this is a major problem as smartd should inform the admins that a disk is complety offline, i.,e. doesn't respond to requests on the IDE bus anymore.

#122 fixed "make install" overwrites existing smartd.conf without warning or backup Christian Franke kaluscha
Description

When installing from source tarball, "make install" overwrites an existing smartd.conf file without warning or creating a backup. If such a config file already exists, it should at least be renamed to something like smartd.conf.backup so the existing configuration doesn't get completely lost.

#123 fixed Option DEVISCAN does not work on OpenBSD >= 4.8 Christian Franke gbechis
Description

With OpenBSD 4.8 the format of sysctl hw.disknames has changed, a patch is needed to handle the new format.
