| Netra Blade X3-2B (formerly Sun Netra X6270 M3 Server Module)
For Oracle Linux 5.8 kernel, RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5.8 kernel, and the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11 Base Install, Service Pack 1 kernel with certain hardware configurations, the kernel and smartd service might generate nuisance error messages. Systems using these kernels with smartd monitoring of the block device enabled and with an internal Sun Storage 6 Gb SAS PCIe RAID host bus adapter (HBA) that is connected to a SATA Drive (such as the 7101423 100GB Solid State SATA Drive) running in RAW JBOD mode, might generate and display multiple error messages on the system console or in /var/log/messages that are similar to the following sample.

Sense ATA pass through information available.
Affected hardware and software:
Server-supported Sun Storage 6 Gb SAS PCIe RAID HBAs
Oracle Linux 5.8
RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5.8
Use the smartctl command to disable monitoring of the drive and to verify drive monitor status:
# smartctl -s off /dev/device_name
where device_name is the name of the storage drive.
