Get HD temperature. SAS disk on E200i on ML350 G5

Hi. I get this error when I try to get info about SAS disks on E200i ctrl on a ML350 G5 with RHEL 5:

[acs] DISTACS2 root /etc> smartctl -d cciss,0 -a /dev/cciss/c0d0
smartctl version 5.36 [x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu] Copyright (C) 2002-6 Bruce Allen
Home page is http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/

Device: HP E200i Version: 1.72
>> Terminate command early due to bad response to IEC mode page
A mandatory SMART command failed: exiting. To continue, add one or more '-T permissive' options.

Here other informations that maybe be useful:

>rpm -qa | grep -i cciss

Also hddtemp doesn't seem to work, because of "unknown bus type":

>hddtemp /dev/cciss/c0d0
ERROR: /dev/cciss/c0d0: can't determine bus type (or this bus type is unknown)

> hddtemp -v
hddtemp version 0.3-beta15

Thanks in advance for any help.

if you don't try, you'll never know if you are able to

Re: Get HD temperature. SAS disk on E200i on ML350 G5

I can't get hddtemp to work too

But smartctl is working fine.

You need to specify device/bus type and the disk number, like this:

smartctl --all -d cciss,2 /dev/cciss/c0d0

So, my HP server coming with 2 disks and by default is connected to the 2 and 3 channel.

first HDD is on -d cciss,2 and the second on the -d cciss,3

I don't now why, but it's work :)
