ML 110 SCSI RAID URGENT PLEASE PLEASE

Can somone please help, i have tried speaking to the HP Support but not getting anywhere with my issue.

One of my Clients has the following server :

ML110 G2
ML110 SCSI Raid Controller P/N 355671-B21
4 x 36.4Gb Ultra 320 SCSI Hard drives 15K RPM

The server is configured in RAID 5

In device manager we see the raid card as :
Adaptec Scsi Raid 2120s.

The server works fine.

However, there is no way of checking/managing the raid systems withing windows, there is no way of seeing if a drive is dead or alive, you can even see the lights on the front of the server.

I have checked the HP site to see if there is any sought of managemnt s/w and there is not, however there is for the SATA version.

Surly there is some sort of windows s/w available to see whats going on with the array.

How about downloaing and installing the Adaptec Storage s/w from the Adaptec site? would this blow my server ?

Some please help, my client is not to impressed ?

Thanks

I don't think you should be afraid of installing Adpatec software - they are serious folks.

Thats right it does manage the SCSI adaptec card too.

At the BIOS prompt, press Ctrl+A
From the ARC menu, select Array Configuration Utility.
From the ACU menu, select Manage Arrays

This S/W does work within windows also.

Great News.

Thanks for this information.

I've been trying to find out how to manage the array in windows for ages. I know the BIOS level version but this is pritty useless as i cant ask the end user to access this. The windows version will make out life a whole lot easier.

Thanks again.

I'll get it installed this afternoon.
