Description

Problem:

Can't use smartctl --scan results for scripting due to incorrect device discovering. When i use default -d scsi value, get no SMART health status and no SMART attributes.

Output 1:

smartctl --scan

/dev/sdb -d scsi # /dev/sdb, SCSI device

Output 2:

smartctl -a /dev/sdb -d scsi

Keywords: linux added; sat scsi smartctl --scan removed
Milestone: undecided

SAT detection relies on SCSI INQUIRY result which is only available if the device is opened.

Try smartctl --scan-open.

comment:2 Changed 3 years ago by shadbarton

It works perfectly
smartctl --scan-open
/dev/sdb -d sat # /dev/sdb [SAT], ATA device
May be it has to be used as default action while smartctl --scan?

comment:3 Changed 3 years ago by Christian Franke

It depends on use case. If only --scan is used, run smartctl with device name only and without the -d option. Then the same auto detection as with --scan-open is in effect: -d scsi is guessed from device name, device is opened, SCSI INQUIRY is issued and -d sat detected from its result.

comment:4 Changed 3 years ago by Christian Franke

Milestone: undecided
Resolution: worksforme
Status: newclosed

If smartctl --scan-open is used, correct device type -d sat is reported.
