Logged into my FreeNAS-11.1-U5 console after updating it and had a system alert that smartd was unable to start.
The GUI log was complaining as well:
Don't recall which disks these were, so I went over to Storage | View Disks in the GUI and they were the USB sticks used for the mirrored boot. I knew this as I labeled each drives slot in the server.
Since the event log was mentioning removable this was another clue. S.M.A.R.T. really is not designed for USB flash drives and more for hard drives and solid-state drives. Click Edit on each of these and turn off S.M.A.R.T.:
