Does SMART enable work with other drives on this machine?

Please attach output of:

$sudo /usr/local/sbin/smartctl -r ioctl,2 -s on /dev/ad4

smart works fine with two other drives on this machine.

So is this a bug in the drive so that nothing can be done by smarttools?
Or this is likely an issue in smarttools?

comment:4 Changed 8 years ago by Christian Franke

If SMART disable (including verification SMART is reported as disabled) and then re-enable actually work with other drives connected to same controller on this system, this is likely a drive firmware issue.

If possible, please test SMART enable with this drive on other system or and/or other OS (e.g. some Linux Live CD).

Actually, this forum post suggests that you are right, this is likely a firmware issue:

Thanks for the info. In the past, we got a positive report for the 1TB variant WDC WD10EARS-00MVWB0 with FW 50.0AB50 on the smartmontools-database list.
