I have Windows Server 2008 R2 with Dell Perc H700, in which i have last slot where installed one single sata disk and configured as just disk. Then installed HyperV machine with use that physical disk. On this HyperV installed debian and etc, installed smartmontools. Disk is working and available under /dev/sdb (/dev/sda is virtual), software working. But while trying to use "smartctl -A /dev/sdb" not working, trying to use "smartctl -A -d megaraid,0 /dev/sdb" getting error "Smartctl open device: /dev/sdb [megaraid_disk_00] failed: cannot open /dev/megaraid_sas_ioctl_node or /dev/megadev0". I listed directory /dev/disk/by-id/ and see it as scsi_## and its scsi_##_part1. So i try "smartctl -A -d scsi /dev/sdb" - not it seems starts read SMART, but finishes after message "=== START OF READ SMART DATA SECTION ===". So still no SMART data about this disk.
Installed CrystalDiskInfo on the windows - it shows status.

Any suggestions to this problem?

Milestone: undecided

Usually a VM guest does not have the transparent pass-through access to a controller or disk which is required for smartctl. See the related FAQ entry.
