camcontrol(8) has been enhanced with SMR options and there's a new zonectl(8) command - these should be able to report whether the drive is recognized as a host-aware or host-managed SMR drive. I believe that drive-managed SMR drives don't admit to anything. >Does the fact that the drive appears as a /dev/daX play any role? USB drives are handled via the SCSI CAM layer rather than as SATA drives. It's possible that either the umass(4) driver or your USB to SATA adapter are not correctly handling the relevant commands. -- Peter Jeremy
