In man smartctl, the following example is given

smartctl --smart=on --offlineauto=on --saveauto=on /dev/hda
Enable SMART on drive /dev/hda, enable automatic offline testing
every four hours, and enable autosaving of SMART Attributes. This
is a good start-up line for your system´s init files. You can issue
this command on a running system.

This seems a good idea, but I'm not sure where to put it. Somewhere
in /etc/init.d/ is about the closest I can get.


chkconfig smartd on

Thank you, Patrick.
