Hard Drive - OMSA™ is Not Completing All Attribute Text Strings in the Dell PowerEdge Express Flash™ PCIe SSD SMART Log
Article Summary: This article provides information on OMSA not completing all attribute text strings in the Express Flash PCIe SSD SMART log
The two methods to extract the SMART log from an Express Flash PCIe SSD are through Open Manage Server Administrator (OMSA) and through the UEFI/HII browser. When using OMSA to extract the SMART log, OMSA does not correctly populate the attribute text strings for each of the fields in the log. Each attribute has an attribute value and these will be correct. The SMART log values will also all be correct.
Another method of retrieving the SMART log is via Human Interface Infrastructure (HII). This log will have all the correct values and names for the values in the appropriate format.
Here is a sample log for reference:
Drive ID: 0
Power On Hours Count
Power Cycle Count
New Failing Block Count

Unexpected Power Loss Count

Use the above two methods for retrieving the SMART logs on Express Flash PCIe SSD.
