Hi,

I'm using smartmontools under Solaris 10/11 for SATA disks behind LSI SAS1068e controllers and SAS expanders. Each time I invoke smartctl I get the following output to the system console:

scsi: WARNING: /pci@0,0/pci8086,25f9@6/pci1000,30a0@0/sd@16,0 (sd69): Error for Command: <undecoded cmd 0x85> Error Level: Recovered scsi: Requested Block: 0 Error Block: 0 scsi: Vendor: ATA Serial Number: scsi: Sense Key: No Additional Sense scsi: ASC: 0x0 (no additional sense info), ASCQ: 0x0, FRU: 0x0

Adding some traces to smartctl I found that the offending command is SMART STATUS CHECK. Verbose output from smartctl looks like that, only excerpts shown here:

REPORT-IOCTL: Device=/dev/rdsk/c8t3d0 Command=SMART STATUS Input: FR=0xda, SC=...., LL=...., LM=0x4f, LH=0xc2, DEV=...., CMD=0xb0 [ata pass-through(16): 85 06 0c 00 da 00 00 00 00 00 4f 00 c2 00 b0 00 ] REPORT-IOCTL: Device=/dev/rdsk/c8t3d0 Command=SMART STATUS returned 0

Any hints how to avoid the console message?

Thanks, Arne
