smartd service on NetApp HCI compute nodes
Contributors Download PDF of this page
By default, the
smartd service periodically polls the drives in your compute nodes. You should disable this service on all compute nodes after you deploy NetApp HCI.
Using SSH or a local console session, log in to VMware ESXi on the compute node using root credentials.
Stop the running
smartdservice from starting at boot:
chkconfig smartd off
Repeat these steps on the rest of the compute nodes in your installation.
