I have an AMD SB with Raid 1 set up through that. I installed Ubuntu Server with no problems. However I know through windows one can set up SMART Tests with AMD's software. Is there a way to run SMART tests on a recurring schedule in Ubuntu and have it email failures?

Alright I found that smartmontools works even with hardware raid.

sudo apt-get install smartmontools

smartctl -i /dev/sda 

Turn SMART On for sda

smartctl -s on /dev/sda 

Get estimates

smartctl -c /dev/sda 

Run a long test

smartctl -t long /dev/sda 

Display test results

smartctl -l selftest /dev/sda
