     185Disks' SMART can be monitored trough an SCSI generic device.
     186
     187You need to make sure SCSI generic device driver is loaded (and will be loaded at boot). On Debian based system, simply run:
     188{{{
     189modprobe sg
     190echo sg >> /etc/modules
     191}}}
     192
     193You can now try to run smartctl against one of the scsi generic devices (you will have to figure out by yourself which one to use):
     194{{{
     195server:~# smartctl -a /dev/sg1

     212}}}
     213
     214You can now edit '''/etc/smartd.conf''' and comment the "DEVICESCAN" line and add specific configuration for each drive, like the example below:
     215{{{
     216# Monitor LSI's disk SMART through SCSI generic
     217/dev/sg1 -d removable -a -s L/../../3/02
     218/dev/sg2 -d removable -a -s L/../../3/03
     219}}}
     220
     221Restart smartd and check syslog...
