Log messages? I suspect you'd have to change your /etc/smartd.conf from
AUTODETECT to specific addressing the disks (including the -d ata flag).

smartd tries to start, but with AUTODETECT enabled it probably does NOT
detect the disks (since one has to go thru libata for this).
This behaviour might change with the next release of smartmontools; please
check with their sf.net site.
