[regression] Unable to use /dev/disk/by-id in smartd.conf

Reported by: Giuseppe Iuculano Owned by: Christian Franke

Component: all Version:
Keywords: Cc:



a Debian user reported a regression against the svn revision [2879]. He can't use anymore /dev/disk/by-id in smartd.conf. I can confirm that. smartctl seems also affected.

Error message:

Device: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST3200822A_3LJ00N4L, unable to autodetect device type
Device: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD6400AAKS-00A7B2_WD-WMASY2546840, unable to autodetect device type
