Needing help because i can't figure by myself how to deal with this.
So, some time ago an offline extended offline test went wrong on one of my WD red 3To drive:
SMART Self-test log structure revision number 1
Num Test_Description Status Remaining LifeTime(hours) LBA_of_first_error
# 1 Short offline Completed without error 00% 4411 -
# 2 Extended offline Completed without error 00% 4336 -
# 3 Short offline Completed without error 00% 4246 -
# 4 Short offline Completed without error 00% 4243 -
# 5 Extended offline Completed: read failure 90% 4103 13587568
# 6 Short offline Completed without error 00% 4079 -
# 7 Short offline Completed without error 00% 3913 -
# 8 Short offline Completed without error 00% 3741 -
I did another extended test with no error but i still get daily email like this:
The following warning/error was logged by the smartd daemon:
Device: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD30EFRX-68EUZN0_WD-WCC4N3HHAZZ7 [SAT], 1 Offline uncorrectable sectors
WDC WD30EFRX-68EUZN0, S/N:WD-xxxxxxxxxxx, WWN:5-0014ee-20e026691, FW:82.00A82, 3.00 TB
For details see host's SYSLOG.
You can also use the smartctl utility for further investigation.

Another message will be sent in 24 hours if the problem persists
i'm aware thoses error might signal a becoming or already defective disk but, as this one is pretty new, and another complete smart test get no error, i'll take the risk ignoring this one but, if the number of errror became to increase, i want to be notified:
What i tried already is to edit smartd.conf to only notify if the number of uncorrecableofflinerorr increase following this:
Superuser forum - How to make smartd shut up about one particular offline uncorrectable sector?
done like this:
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD30EFRX-68EUZN0_WD-xxxxxxxxxx -a -o on -S on -T permissive -W 0,0,0 -I 190 -I 194 -I 231 -n standby,q \
-s (S/../../1/04|L/../01/./04) \
-U 198+ \
-m firstname.lastname@example.org -M exec /usr/share/smartmontools/smartd-runner
Is this correct? if not, any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
EDIT 1: As it's explained in the smartd.conf - The configuration file is generated automatically, so changing a line there won't change anything and will be overwritten.
