Smartmontools seem to have a very old (2017) database that doesn't include all the drive types I'm using. Earlier in 11.2-U2.1 I updated it manually by downloading drivedb.h from smartmontools sourceforge page and copying it to FreeNAS' smartmontools directory replacing the old one. Using update-smart-drivedb didn't update the database, it just downloaded the same old one (or didn't download at all, not sure).

Looks like when I updated to 11.2-U3 that old database has again returned. And now update-smart-drivedb gives drivedb.h.error.raw: *** BAD signature *** error.

So what's going on? Is it just my system?

That error makes sense as you bypassed the version built into FreeNAS.

Please create a feature request at redmine.ixsystems.com to have the smartmontools updated.

Feature request is great o/c, but in the interim
Code:
/usr/local/sbin/update-smart-drivedb --no-verify
