  1. thanks for the reply.

     

    I'm using 2008M-8i card and also 9271-8i RAID controller(i guess these both controllers are capable of getting SMART details), on both the servers i have esxi5.1 installed,  for some reason i don't get smart details in any server.

     

    do i need to enable something in BIOS or in vsphere to get this command display all the details?

     

    When i run this command " ~ # esxcli storage core device partition list", when i have 13 drives in my server it displays only 8 and all the device names are same. confused here :(

    so the smart command which i am running against the device is wrong? device name should be something else?/

    @aron, this article covers how to get SMART data in Stablebit Scanner running in a Windows VM with RDM disks on an ESXi host.  The following is the KB article from VMware about how to query SMART data from your drives from the ESXi host CLI: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2040405

     

    You will also need to make sure that passing of SMART data is supported on your particular controller.  Here is an example from my host:

    ~ # esxcli storage core device smart get -d naa.5e83a97f147d02bc
    Parameter                     Value  Threshold  Worst

    Write Error Count             N/A    N/A        N/A
    Read Error Count              117    50         100
    Power-on Hours                100    0          100

  3. hi,

     

    My issue:

     

    I am trying to get SMART data for my hard drives (SAS and SSD) with esxcli command " esxcli storage core device SMART -d <device name>"

     

    when i try to query this command from my ESXi 5.1 host (installed on my server SSH to this host and ran this command), it gives all N/A (attached image). what should i exactly enable or disable and where, to get this command work with esxcli command?

     

     since i am very new with SMART, Vmware and Hard drive stuff, i cannot get my task work right, even though this post has more information, i am missing something.

     

    can some please be more specific. thanks in advance!
