Sorry, that I step in but you said that you are working on smartsuite (2.1+),
again?

Andre, can you fix start/stop counts, please?

unWave1 /home/nuetzel# /usr/local/sbin/smartctl -a /dev/sda
Device: IBM DDYS-T18350N Version: S96H
Device supports S.M.A.R.T. and is Enabled
Temperature Warning Disabled or Not Supported
S.M.A.R.T. Sense: Okay!
Current Drive Temperature: 31 C
Drive Trip Temperature: 85 C
Current start stop count: 131072 times
Recommended start stop count: 2555920 times

SunWave1 /home/nuetzel# /usr/local/sbin/smartctl -a /dev/sdb
Device: IBM DDRS-34560D Version: DC1B
Device supports S.M.A.R.T. and is Enabled
Temperature Warning Disabled or Not Supported
S.M.A.R.T. Sense: Okay!

SunWave1 /home/nuetzel# /usr/local/sbin/smartctl -a /dev/sdc

Smartsuite-2.1 (at least) missing some feather for SCSI.

Regards,
Dieter

BTW
I had a double disk crash (same symptoms as in this thread) in a school's
RAID5 with four Fujitsu MPG3204AT-EF (the ones with gel-lager, silent and
reliable we hoped) last week...
The shop for which I work from time to time got 71 disks of this type back
(sold over the last 1.5 years). We switched to them after the "IBM" disaster.
Maybe a "misdecision" ;-)
What shall we sell safely, now...?
MAXTOR?
