Hi, I downloaded the smartmontool v6.5 and tried to get the NVMe SSD on Windows. However, I cannot successfully execute the following command. Is there any mistake for my command?

Thanks a lot.


D:\bin>smartctl --scan
/dev/sdb -d ata # /dev/sdb, ATA device
/dev/csmi1,2 -d ata # /dev/csmi1,2, ATA device

==> the list does not contains the NVMe drive.

d:\bin>smartctl -d nvme --scan

===> nothing was displayed

D:\bin>smartctl -d nvme /dev/sda -i

Please do not use bug tracker for support questions, use mailing list instead.

Which NVMe driver is used?
Which NVMe device is used?
Do other tools report NVMe info?

Note that only NVMe drivers which provide ​NVME_PASS_THROUGH I/O-control are supported (see NVMe wiki page). Output of smartctl -d nvme --scan suggests that this is not the case for the installed driver.

Pseudo device name /dev/sda does not work for NVMe. Try /dev/nvme0 for first NVMe device (see man page).
