I need to know when a hard disk fails !

Hello
We have 20 dl380s spread out over several sites. I want to be alerted, or have one central screen where I can check if a physical disk has failed on any of these servers. What is the best (easiest!) way of doing this?

When responding assume I am stupid.

Thanks, in advance

HP have product to centrally manage almost all of HP servers: HP Systems Insight Manager.
http://h18013.www1.hp.com/products/servers/management/hpsim/index.html
This product will show you server (and internal components) health.
HP SIM shipped free of charge with your servers (look on SmartStart management CD).
HP agents must be deployed to servers. They are installed by default if you setup servers by SmartStart.
