RAID notifications

We have been using HP servers for the past three years for our XenServer platforms and they work good. BUT we cannot figure out how to get the RAID controller to send us alerts when a drive fails. In Dell, the controller has this option (which is great from a management standpoint!) but we cannot find this with the HP equipment.


We manage dozens of clients with HP servers on the XenServer (linux) platform. How can we get the hardware to notify us when there is a drive issue (or any other system level problems)?


Re: RAID notifications

In VMware you can install from HP-customized iso image or add HP driver bundle to generic VMware install, after which it becomes aware about all hardware-specific details and events and can send alerts correspondingly. I guess something similar can be done with Xen too
