If you're using High Sierra, and booting up from a SoftRAID volume, you'll need to follow the steps given in this forum post, since the macOS High Sierra Installer does not recognize SoftRAID volumes as valid startup volumes.

SMART over eSATA
#1
Hi there,

I have a bunch of USB / eSATA multi bay enclosures. At the moment I'm using USB but don't get SMART status and overall not great reliability.

Thinking about getting a thunderbolt to eSATA adapter, is it known if the SAMRT data is sent over eSATA & thunderbolt adapter to SoftRAID?

Thanks

Declan

It depends on the host adapter. Generally SMART is passed over eSATA.
