     362=== Is is possible to monitor a raw disk with smartmontools running on a virtual machine guest OS? ===
     363
     364No. If a guest OS disk is configured as a raw disk, this only means that its sectors are mapped transparently to the underlying physical disk. This does not imply the ATA or SCSI pass-through access required for smartmontools. Even the disk's identity is typically not exposed to the guest OS.
