Hello JELIS, Thank you for your reply, We are glad to hear that by updating the firmware of your controller and the VMware* drivers the idrac8 is now able to read some information from the SSDs. Regarding your question: How can I calculate the life expectancy of the drives ? or detect a predictive failure of Intel SSDs ?” The difference between the SSDs that you get from Dell* and the ones from Intel is the Firmware and the features that the Dell firmware includes like the option to get information about the life expectancy in idrac8 directly, in our SSDs this information is normally extracted using DCT but as you mentioned since you drive is connected to an HBA330 that could interfere with the communication between the SSD and the tool. The information that you extracted from ESXi seems to include the information about the drive health status and can be used as a reference in order to discard any issue with your hardware. This being said up to this point the best option is to extract the logs from ESXi and to check the following parameters. 1. Health Status 2. Media Wearout Indicator 3. Write Error Count 4. Read Error Count We hope you find this information useful. Best regards. Josh B. Intel® Customer Support Technician Under Contract to Intel Corporation

Hello JELIS, Thank you for your reply, As we understand your SSD is working as expected on your guest OS and your VMware OS is able to recognize the drive properly, the issue seems to be related to the embedded Dell* solution called Idrac8 that came with your system. We advise you to check the list of tested and compatible hardware of your PC in order to discard any hardware compatibility issue. Another reason that the SSD is not recognized could be related to the HBA330 controller. In case you have your SSD connected to this device we advise you to try to connect it directly to the motherboard. Regarding the logs that we requested in our last interaction the best way to extract them is by using a system with Windows* or Linux OS. This being said if you have another PC that you can connect the SSD too and extract the Smart logs we will appreciate that information. We will be looking forward to your reply letting us know the results of this troubleshooting and including the logs requested if possible. Have a nice day. Best regards, Josh B.

2019-02-14 13_52_03-Clipboard.png2019-02-14 13_53_28-Clipboard.pngHello Josh,

I have update the Firmware of the HBA330 and the driver for ESX6.5 . The SSDs are detected in idrac8 now ;) !

Only one thing not work in Idrac , the life expectancy of the drives...

officiel DELL SSD (intel type) have this informations.

Can i have this information by another way ? i can't use SSD Datacenter tools (the SSD is behind HBA330, not supported in the documentation).

 

How can i calculate the the life expectancy of the drives ? or detect a predictive failure of intel SSDs ?

 

I have this king of informations on ESX .
