ceph can check the hardware status with smartctl/nvme

to do this, ceph ships a sudoers.d snippet that allows those two commands

i just checked here, it works as intended

does the file '/etc/sudoers.d/ceph-osd-smartcl' exist in your installation?

did you do any further sudo configuration or changed the 'ceph' user

kind regards
