Adaptec RAID Card - SMART Data

Follow

In a situation where you're utilising an Adaptec based RAID card, you should be able to utilise the below commands as an example to obtain data from the SMART Information on the Hard Drives.

Adaptec cards require the "/dev/sgx" values to check smart data, you would need to locate the sg values first to see which drives may be present.

# ls -lah /dev/sg*
crw-rw---- 1 root disk 21, 0 May 14 14:11 /dev/sg0
crw-rw---- 1 root disk 21, 1 May 14 14:11 /dev/sg1
crw-rw---- 1 root disk 21, 2 May 14 14:11 /dev/sg2

You should now be able to obtain the data for individual devices, by using the below examples.

For SATA / SSD

# smartctl -a -d sat /dev/sg2
