smartctl works correctly:
[...]

It doesn't. It prints the SCSI/SAS inquiry instead of the ATA identify information. In release 5.38 auto-detection of SAT was only present in smartd but not in smartctl.

These messages suggest that smartd detects a SAT layer but the ATA IDENTIFY via the SAT pass-through command does not work properly:

Aug 30 17:58:12 crosrv07 smartd[6798]: Device /dev/cciss/c0d0 [cciss_disk_00]: using '-d sat' for ATA disk behind SAT layer.
[...]
Aug 30 17:58:12 crosrv07 smartd[6798]: Device: /dev/cciss/c0d0 [cciss_disk_00], ATA IDENTIFY DEVICE words 82-83 don't specify if SMART capable.

Meantime handling of controllers and auto-detection has considerably changed. Please try smartmontools 5.39.1 or even better current version from SVN.

If SAT auto-detection does not work with current version the following may help:

smartctl -d sat+cciss,0 -a /dev/cciss/c0d0

I don't know whether CCISS driver/firmware really provides the SAT pass-through support required to monitor SATA disks. If not, only SAS disks can be monitored.

comment:2 Changed 9 years ago by gabrielev

Tried with the current version in debian, but smartd complains about knowing anything about the format "sat+cciss".
Can't install other version than this, because the machine is in a CSV environment.

Thank you very much for your help !

That's what somebody at HP told me in May 2007:

| SATA drive support behind a smart array controller can only be done on
| an MSA20 enclosure. It appears you can't get detailed SATA disk
| information from other smart array devices since the firmware support
| for the passthroughs isn't there yet.

This might have changed in newer drive firmware.

Replying to dariusski:

smartctl -d sat+cciss,0 -a /dev/cciss/c0d0

Worked for me on Linux x64 + cciss + X25-M G2 SSD.

Which controller model and firmware revision was used?
