Getting disk temperature

Mikhail Firsov 1,876 Reputation points


There's the MS article that confirms that "Get-StorageReliabilityCounter doesn't report correct values of temperature in Windows Server 2012 R2". To resolve the issue in 2012R2 MS offers to download an update.

I have Windows Server 2012R2/2016/2019 machines in my network and all of them receive updates on a regular basis, all of them have ~ the same hdd/ssd.

The result: machines with Windows Server 2012R2/2016 do show temperatures (only for the disks attached directly to the motherboard - not to the raid controllers), but Windows Server 2019 does not:



Q1: Can anybody confirm Windows Server 2019 does return disk temperature?

Q2: Is there a way to get the temperature of the RAID-attached disks via wmi(wmic) and/or PowerShell?

Thank you in advance,

    P.S. Windows Server 2019 does return disk temperature, but not for all directly-attached disks (there are 4 disks attached to the motherboard):

    Maybe not all disk manufactures support reporting disk temperatures?
