That writes on stdout; so if you used commands like you show
then no change is not so surprising.  A suggestion was
' >/etc/smartd.conf' which is something different
than the above.

There is also possibilty that you have to turn on SMART capabilities
on a device or devices - if such capabilities are indeed present.
See 'man smartctl' and there option '-s' in particular.  If you
have disks which do not support SMART then do not include these in
/etc/smartd.conf or you will always get failures.
