Software to Manage RAID status for Proliant ML330 with ESXi

I'm in need of windows software to manage or verify my raid status on our monthy server checks.  This is an ESXi 5.1 configuration on an ML330 server and all our other servers have adaptec cards in which I use Maxview software.  I'm unfamiliar with how HP does this, but I would like software that installs on our Vcenter server, or even a vcenter plug in which allows us to check for optimal raid status each month.  I'm familar with installing cim's, vib's etc for the adaptec cards, but after looking at the HP site I'm totally confused.  Any help would be appreciated.

Hi ,

vCenter plugin is not available for viewing the status.
However in HW status tab you can see the components health, and that is been displayed using HP CIM providers.

HP has a tool "Utilities Offline Bundle:" , it has HPSSACLI utility and can be used to see storage subsystem status.
i.e.
/opt/hp/hpssacli/bin # pwd
/opt/hp/hpssacli/bin
/opt/hp/hpssacli/bin # ./hpssacli ctrl all show status

Smart Array P220i in Slot 0 (Embedded)
Controller Status: OK
Cache Status: OK
Battery/Capacitor Status: OK
