In my server I have four 40GB IBM Deskstar 120GXP drives attached
to an Adaptec 2400A RAID controller in a RAID-5 configuration
with one of the drives configured as a hot spare.

According to Adaptec's raidutil utility the four drives do not
have the S.M.A.R.T. capability for detecting potential problems.
However according to the IBM/Hitachi datasheet for these drive
they _do_ have this capability:

Is there a way to convince the 2400A that these drives do support
S.M.A.R.T, and if so how do I enable it?

I am running FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE-p3. The output of:

    /usr/local/dpt/raidutil -L all

is included below.

Thanks, Guido
