Terminate command early due to bad response to IEC mode page

A mandatory SMART command failed: exiting. To continue, add one or more '-T permissive' options.

  • Component changed from smartctl to all

Replying to tomazbeltram:

The supported SMART commands are described here:

The SMART Command Feature Set
http://www.micron.com/get-document/?documentId=5611

This document describes the standard ATA SMART commands and some of the vendor specific SMART attributes. It does not describe the ATA pass-through SCSI command which is required to access the ATA SMART info of USB devices.

Does smartctl -d sat -a /dev/sda work?

If not we cannot add support for this device unless Micron provides a documentation about the vendor specific ATA pass-through command used by the USB bridge from this SSD.

unfortunately not :(

Smartctl: Device Read Identity Failed (not an ATA/ATAPI device)

A mandatory SMART command failed: exiting. To continue, add one or more '-T permissive' options.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Please excuse my ignorance, but isn't the ATA pass through public and implemented somewhere in some Linux kernel device driver? Otherwise I agree we'll have to get Micron to publish what they implemented.

Replying to tomazbeltram:

The Linux kernel implements the ATA pass-through commands from SCSI/ATA Translation (SAT) standard.

These commands are also used when smartctl option -d sat or -d sat,12 is specified. If neither of these options work with this device then it may or may not implement some unknown vendor specific pass-through command. The vendor specific commands for Cypress, JMicron, and Sunplus USB bridges are already supported by smartmontools. These vendors provided the specs.
