The answer is right here: The device you're querying does not
have S.M.A.R.T. support. The reason might be:

The disk device da0 is part of a RAID configuration, it does
not directly correspond to a disk. Only a "physical disk" can
be addressed with smartctl.

Your options:

1. Make the PIKE 2008 controller "hand the disk through", removing
   it from the RAID configuration.

2. Attach the disk to a direct connection.

You won't be able to run smartctl diagnostics otherwise as this
requires a "more direct access" than the RAID controller can offer.
