The three drives are OCZ-VERTEX3 drives. I have tried running all the SMART self tests, but either it returns nothing or pretends it's not started or somesuch. 

When i download the SMART report it gives me a text document with the following features of interest inside:


SMART support is: Available - device has SMART capability.
SMART support is: Disabled


SMART Disabled. Use option -s with argument 'on' to enable it.
(override with '-T permissive' option)


Can I in some manner enable the SMART feature on these disks? What command, and how? I'm not sure what to do with the -s argument with 'on' maybe with a -T permissive option. Any hints, tips or tricks? :)
