The output is not useful. The SMART data block is returned with all zeroes and the Log Directory could not be read:

General SMART Values:
Offline data collection status:  (0x00)	Offline data collection activity
					was never started.
					Auto Offline Data Collection: Disabled.
Error logging capability:        (0x00)	Error logging NOT supported.
					No General Purpose Logging support.

Read SMART Log Directory failed: scsi error aborted command

This is a limitation (or bug) in the ATA/SCSI pass-through layer between smartctl and drive. Which controller, USB bridge, ... was used here?

Attribute set is likely similar to WD101KFBX (#1030), but this cannot be verified with the output attached above.

Test was performed using a StarTech? SDOCK2U33RE which uses a JMicron JMS562 chipset.

The command used to perform the test is:

smartctl -q noserial -x -d sat /dev/sdb > WDC-WD102KFBX.txt

Is there some other flag that needs to added?

-d sat reportedly worked with this USB bridge. Older JMicron bridges require -d usbjmicron. May also depend on firmware version.

I don't have any way to check the firmware version on the USB dock at this time. I will put together another computer to run Ubuntu 21.10 and install it internally to avoid the chipset issue. This will take about half a day.

Apologies for the delay, I had to wait for a replacement part to arrive. Directly connected to the motherboard yielded more results.

Thanks, looks much better. Could be added to existing entry Western Digital Red Pro.

Interestingly the WD102KFBX does not provide attribute 22 (Helium_Level) but WD101KFBX (#1030) does. The firmware versions (83.00A83 vs. 83.H0A03) may also suggest that only the WD101KFBX is a helium drive.

comment:9 Changed 6 months ago by Mitium

I doubt that it is a helium filled drive, since I see a vent hole in the upper cover.

I do recall reading elsewhere on the internet that it is one of the primary differences compared to the WD101KFBX.
