Just out of curiosity, how do you get smart to work with a USB drive? I've never seen an enclosure that will pass the status.
No clue any more as the purchase is dated multiple years back. I dont remember if I put additional efforts into maters while searching for and ordering the dock. It is DeLock with (model?) number 61965.
I'll have to look into that, thanks!
Raw-mode disks are attached to guest machine by entry in v.m. configuration in form as following
ide0:0 .present = TRUE
ide0:0.fileName = ....file name follows
ide0:0.deviceType = "rawDisk"
where the string 'ide' must be replaced by one from few other choices.
Any idea if there is some additional field in that structure which could help to pass through SMART to guest in raw-disk mode?
