    I'm attempting to setup adoptable storage for a friend's Samsung Galaxy Tab E (SM-T560NU), and he has the correct version of Android for it (6.0.1). I've enabled dev mode, usb debugging, and connected the device to a PC with ADB.

    I'm able to see the removable card both on the Android device and in my Windows file manager. Running ADB, I can list the target disk but the commands don't appear to have any effect:

    shell@gtelwifiue:/ $ sm list-disks
    shell@gtelwifiue:/ $ sm set-force-adoptable true
    shell@gtelwifiue:/ $ sm partition disk:179,64 private
    shell@gtelwifiue:/ $ sm set-force-adoptable false
    shell@gtelwifiue:/ $ sm list-volumes all
    private mounted null
    public:179,65 mounted 7799-1DFE
    emulated mounted null
    privatemode unmounted null
    shell@gtelwifiue:/ $

    After this, the microSD card is still listed as portable storage and not as internal storage. I've exhausted any other commands I can think of, would you have any recommendations?

    As this is a lower end device it may not contain the code to support your commands

    Samsung disabled adoptable storage on their MM builds. It's only available on the S7 line via jumping through hoops.
