Problem setting up S.M.A.R.T monitoring
I am trying to setup smart monitoring using smartd but it refuses to start.
I have installed smartmontools and I am able to run smartctl -i /dev/[device] for all my drives and see that they are smart enabled.
However, when I try to run service smartd start it fails:
# service smartd start Starting smartd (via systemctl): Job failed. See system logs and 'systemctl status' for details. [FAILED]
Oct 16 00:02:10 holisrv2 systemd: Failed to load environment files: No such file or directory Oct 16 00:02:10 holisrv2 systemd: smartd.service failed to run 'start' task: No such file or directory
I have looked around a bit and I have /etc/smartd.conf with the following content:
# Sample configuration file for smartd. See man smartd.conf. DEVICESCAN -S on -o on -a -I 194 -m firstname.lastname@example.org -s (S/../.././02|L/../../6/03)
# cat /etc/default/smartmontools # Defaults for smartmontools initscript (/etc/init.d/smartmontools) # This is a POSIX shell fragment # List of devices you want to explicitly enable S.M.A.R.T. for # Not needed (and not recommended) if the device is monitored by smartd #enable_smart="/dev/hda /dev/hdb" # uncomment to start smartd on system startup start_smartd=yes # uncomment to pass additional options to smartd on startup smartd_opts="--interval=1800"
# Source function library . /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions # Source configuration file [ -r /etc/sysconfig/smartd ] && . /etc/sysconfig/smartd
I appreciate any help I can get.

Since you are running mandrivia I assume you are missing some smartd dependencies, I am not sure which one exactly however. My suggestion is for you to check if all dependencies are installed

What distro are you running? Is it really mandriva? On my system, the required config file is:
