How's about you just report that you have run the drive manufacturer's state of the art diagnostics, report the results however limited and inconclusive, and call it good. You might also suggest that since the hardware is pretty old, it's more failure prone than new hardware, and since aging hardware is inherently prone to failure, the specific causes are difficult to diagnose. Give them the best info you have, explain it to the best of you ability and go with that.

RAID won't support SMART commands. You need to connect each hard disk individually on normal SATA ports to read SMART values. But if your intention is to check the full surface for bad sectors, there are tools available which can do the surface scan under RAID. HDTunepro is one of them. There is a 15 day trial version available.
