I see an error message every time I boot my AMD64 FreeBSD 7.0 system or when I restart smartd. These are the dmesg lines that seem relevant to the issue (shortened for clarity):

kernel: FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE #0: Fri Jun  6 22:06:44 NZST 2008

I am happy to provide more info if that helps.#
I am using the latest version of smartmontools (5.38).

The actual error messages are:

kernel: ad12: FAILURE - SMART status=51<READY,DSC,ERROR> error=4<ABORTED>
kernel: ad14: FAILURE - SMART status=51<READY,DSC,ERROR> error=4<ABORTED>
kernel: ad16: FAILURE - SMART status=51<READY,DSC,ERROR> error=4<ABORTED>
kernel: ad18: FAILURE - SMART status=51<READY,DSC,ERROR> error=4<ABORTED>

Apart from that, the disks seem to be working fine.
I am running a ZFS pool on them and they perform great, no worries whatsoever; I am simply unsure what these error messages mean and if they should worry me.

Also, the disks are SATA300, the controller supports SATA150 only; there is a jumper on the disks that limits them to SATA150 which I removed. Could that be relevant ?

Thank you very much for your attention.

Kind regards,
