Description

smartctl -l selftest does not show running selftest status with Toshiba MK2002TSKB HDD

To reproduce:
1) Launch selftest:
smartctl -t long /dev/sdX
2) Try to check the status after some time:
smartctl -l selftest /dev/sdX
result: there is no running selftest logged, selftest will appear in log only after completition.

Workaround:
Lauch another selftest:

smartctl -t long

Smartctl will show the status of current running selftest:

Can't start self-test without aborting current test (20% remaining)

The contents of the self-test log is set by drive firmware, not by smartctl. Some drives add self-tests immediately to self-test log, others wait until the test is finished.

Try "smartctl -c /dev/sdX" (included in -a and -x). If the "Self-test execution status: ..." info shows reasonable info, set this ticket to resolved/invalid.

Yes, smartctl -c shows the status:
Self-test execution status: ( 249) Self-test routine in progress...

90% of test remaining.
