apt-get install smartmontools

Test smartctl

smartctl -a -d ata /dev/sda ↔ Debian Etch smartctl -a /dev/sda

Config Default Smart Service

vi /etc/smartd.conf #DEVICESCAN -m root -M exec /usr/share/smartmontools/smartd-runner #comment out the above, and include the following for the two hard disks. /dev/sda -a -d ata -m root -l error -l selftest -t /dev/sdb -a -d ata -m root -l error -l selftest -t

Even though the hard drive was an sata - I had to use “-d ata” in the above line. It all worked perfect after the above. Munin then ties in with smartd to take regular readings and produce graphs.

vi /etc/default/smartmontools and uncomment: start_smartd=yes

Test SMART for any Errors
