Description

Hello,

This is the first time when I see this error and I can understand what does it mean. I also did some research on google and unfortunately I didn't found anything about this error.

root@server [~]# smartctl -H /dev/sdc 
smartctl version 5.38 [x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu] Copyright (C) 2002-8 Bruce Allen

Thank you for your help.

The smartmontools version 5.38 is more than 4 years old. This old version actually reports an attribute as failing even its if its threshold is 0. The fix r2983 is included in smartmontools 5.39 or later.

Please update to smartmontools 6.0. This should also provide a more reasonable output for the attribute 9 raw value (which is likely from a SandForce based SSD).
