Seagate ST8000VN004-2M2101 doesn't show SMART attributes with -x
I have a Seagate Ironwolf 8TB drive (model ST8000VN004-2M2101) that's attached to a Syba 8-bay SATA-to-USB enclosure.
When I run
smartctl -a, the "Vendor Specific SMART Attributes with Thresholds" section shows in the output, as I'd expect.
However, when I run
smartctl -x, this section isn't included in the output -- instead, I see the following in the output at about the point where I'd expect this section to be:
Write SCT (Get) Feature Control Command failed: scsi error aborted command Wt Cache Reorder: Unknown (SCT Feature Control command failed) Read SMART Data failed: SAT command failed
Since the man page indicated that
-x is equivalent to
-H -i -g all -g wcreorder -c -A -f brief -l xerror,error -l xselftest,selftest -l selective -l directory -l scttemp -l scterc -l devstat -l defects -l sataphy, I tried running
smartctl with these flags and then individually eliminating flags until the problem went away. Through this process, I managed to narrow down
-g wcreorder as being the offending flag -- once I removed that, the issue went away.
If it helps, I've attached the output of
smartctl -x, and
smartctl -x -r ioctl -r ioctl.
