Use of smartmontools for SATA drives behind a Smart Array Controller

Can I get a report of serial numbers of individual disks attached to a SmartArray controller when the disks are SATA using smartmontools? The customer I am working with uses Linux primarily and doesn't want to setup a SIM machine. I know that smartmontools works through SmartArray controllers for SCSI but they have had problems with SATA.

You probably can do that with hpacucli. The hpacucli package is part of the Proliant Support Pack.

=> set target controller slot=1

"controller slot=1"

=> show config detail
