Is there a good way to make a smart group based on SMART status of just the boot drive? I can do the smart status, but if someone has a disk image mounted or external disk mounted, my flag of "is not" verified will get tripped. Is it limitable to the boot drive?

I think I may have it, but I need a sanity check. How's this look? I don't think I'm not familiar enough with SMART to know what not to look for

...and yes. That is my answer for everything. Well, almost.

In your script could you not just specify the device node? I mean OS X
is almost always going to be /dev/disk0s2 on a default install. Or I
guess you could pipe out a grep that only checks the boot volume?
Or how Miles put it, a dummy receipt

Sounds like you're over-complicating it to me. The boot drive (or any internal drive) will be the only ones that can have a status of "Failing". Scope your smart group to that.

Yes that's what I do, and I only have 1 internal drive

I cannot find an example of this anyone on the boards. Is there a link somewhere to show the smart status as an extension attribute?
