Name of WMI HDD health-sensor



I tried to add the WMI smart-sensor, but got the same error as here: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/61784-my-dell-poweredge-sensor-fails-to-validate-disks-and-i-cant-add-it-what-can-i-do

Serial numbers are shown, but no more info (name, size).

I also tried to add the HDD's using auto-discover and it seems to be working, however without any info under "SMART SPECIFIC"

How can i know what sensor belongs to what HDD?

hdd serial smart wmi

That's a completely different sensor - can you send me a screenshot of the sensor right after you clicked it in the add sensor menu?
