Fresh install FreeNAS-11.3-U4.1.
1 x Raid card(obviously in HBA mode): HPE Smart Array P822 (I know, everyone will say not compatible nor recommended hardware)
3 x HBA cards: HPE H240 HBA and 2 cards with LSI SAS2008 chipset (DELL PERC H310 and Fujistu D2607-A11) both flashed to latest IT firmware 20.00.04.00-IT.
Same frustrating result:
- no presence of /etc/ix.rc.d/ix_smartd file
- file /usr/local/etc/smartd.conf is empty
- smartd is not running

Same result for all the other SSDs (excluding the SD card - disabled SMART for it in Storage -> Disks -> Edit -> Enable SMART checkbox -> Unchecked)
If I manually add DEVICESCAN -a to /usr/local/etc/smartd.conf and manually start smartd daemon in CLI, surprise, smart is working.
So maybe this "bug" could finally be solved?
