This should be fixed in -U2.

I have just installed fresh new 11.2.U3 on HP micro server G7 and this error is there from a very beginning.
root: /etc/rc: WARNING: /usr/local/etc/smartd.conf is not readable.

Same here (almost).

Since fresh installing 11.2-U3 and loading config file from 11.0-U4 I have never received SMART emails although the rest of the system emails are sucessfully sent. Changes made to Services -> SMART -> edit are reflected in /usr/local/etc/smartd.conf, but there is no /etc/ix.rc.d/ix-smartd file at all. I gather that's why no emails are being sent. Not sure if I could use the line on the previous page as a template because there are so many options and switches and stuff.
