Will the Onboard Administrator (OA) warn about a failed disk in blade?

Richard has an OA question:

 

****************

 

Should I expect the OA to display the fact that there is a failed internal disk in a blade?

 

Currently, on a customer site, there is a faulted disk in a BL460cG6. The iLO has no entry in the IML about it, the iLO shows the disk as faulted in the System Information-Drive Status window in the iLO Web Administration pages. The OA System Status is all clear.

 

OA 3.32

BL460cg6 05/05/2011

iLO2 2.05

 

*****************

 

From David:

No, you need the management agents to do this, and OA has no visibility to it.  iLO2 can only indirectly infer drive status by snooping on the drive backplane; it has not direct access to drives.

Hallo guys

 

What OS are you running? I have not experienced this on blades running ESX or ESXi
