Description

Hello,

When I execute smartctl.exe -A /dev/csmi0,1 in Windows CMD i get the right information about my disk behind an Intel RAID Controller.

When I execute smartctl -A /dev/csmi0,1 in Windows Powershell it says, you have provided 2 device names: /dev/csmi0 and 1. How is this possible?

Kind Regards,

Marco

When I use a space instead of a comma it also says You have provided 2 device names.

When I use an extra space so I get /dev/csmi 0 1 it even says You have provided 3 device names...

Try to put this in quote. It seems that powershell sends this as 2 parameters.

This is not a smartctl issue. On Powershell, the command requires quoting because arguments are split at the ','. Prepend Write-Host to a command see the effect:

PS C:\> Write-Host smartctl -A /dev/csmi0,1
smartctl -A /dev/csmi0 1
PS C:\> Write-Host smartctl -A "/dev/csmi0,1"
smartctl -A /dev/csmi0,1

Thanks this worked! I only have one issue left. When i want to execute a powershell script for a HDD without RAID controller, I have this:

#Define the parameters for Zabbix to call
param($arg1,$arg2)

#/dev/sda in Linux = hda in Windows

if ($arg1-eq "/dev/sda") {$arg1 = "hda"}
if ($arg1-eq "/dev/sdb") {$arg1 = "hdb"}

# Execute smartctl and assign the output to a variable

$smartctl = "C:\Zabbix\smartmontools\bin\smartctl.exe -A " + $arg1

This works, but when I change the parameters to an Intel RAID controller:

#Define the parameters for Zabbix to call
param($arg1,$arg2)

#/dev/sda in Linux = hda in Windows

if ($arg1-eq "'/dev/csmi0,1'") {$arg1 = "'/dev/csmi0,1'"}

$smartctl = "C:\Zabbix\smartmontools\bin\smartctl.exe -A " + $arg1

It says ERROR: smartctl requires a devicename as the final command-line argument. /dev/csmi0,1 is the right device so how can he give an error here?

Run smartctl --scan to get a list of connected devices.
