I am about to move some of my small company services to Ubuntu while still learning it. I'm also about to buy a hardware raid, and a guy reviewing an IBM/LSI controller in this article said, that doesn't passthru SMART info to OS and it needs to do it for Linux servers. Since I have a real bargain for IBM ServeRAID M1015 or IBM ServeRAID M5015 at the moment, I need to know why lack of SMART passthru is an issue here?
