    Hello,

    I have this message for only one server:

    Now even after the test and know that there is no error, I still get the SMART error.

    Does anyone have similar problem? Any solution for this?

    Thanks.

    Do a search here for Unknown_Variable ... this issue has been discussed in a couple of threads now. :)
