Bought a new NVMe drive. Installed it using cheap PCIe adaptor bought off Amazon.

From /var/run/dmesg.boot

nvd0:  NVMe namespace
nvd0: 244198MB (500118192 512 byte sectors)

Surprisingly, the device is already partitioned.

[dvl@test ~]$ gpart show nvd0
=>       34  500118125  nvd0  GPT  (238G)
         34  500118125        - free -  (238G)
[dvl@test ~]$ 

Eh, is is this a used device? The static bag it arrived in was sealed.

Let’s see.

[dvl@test ~]$ sudo smartctl -a /dev/nvd0

/dev/nvd0: To monitor NVMe disks use /dev/nvme* device names
Please specify device type with the -d option.

Use smartctl -h to get a usage summary

Oh, use the other device.
