What drives are in my server's RAID?

I have a DL365 with a Smart Array E200i RAID controller. There are two physical disks installed. Is there some way to make it tell me the manufacturer and model number of these drives?

If you got the system management homepage installed then you can find the info there.

Nope. I installed CentOS, so that's not available. I should mention that I tried fdisk, parted and hdparm. They just tell me about the controller.

Can you get the server offline for a while?

If the answer is yes then you can boot with smart start, run ACU and generate an ADU report.

As CentOS is Linux based you may install the Linux Proliant Support Pack for one of the linux versions.

maybe you need to try some wich support pack works best.

If you are running linux install the smartmon tools package and use the following command (use cciss,X for the rest of the drives):

#smartctl -i -d cciss,0 /dev/cciss/c0d0
smartctl version 5.38 [x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu] Copyright (C) 2002-8 Bruce Allen
Home page is http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/

Device: HP EG0146FARTR Version: HPD5
Serial number: D2A1PAXXXXXXXXXX
Device type: disk
Transport protocol: SAS
Local Time is: Wed Apr 28 17:41:19 2010 CDT
Device supports SMART and is Enabled
Temperature Warning Enabled

If you have ACU then use:
hpacucli ctrl all show
Smart Array P410i in Slot X (Embedded) (take note of the slot number)

and then

hpacucli ctrl slot=X pd all show detail
(replace X for the slot # obtained on the previous step)

That will show you the exact drive model among other info.

Thanks. That did it. Smartctl told me that the vendor is Seagate. It was easy to find hpacucli and install it. It tells me that the model is "HP DG146ABAB4". It's SAS, 146 GB, 10K RPM. Now I'll have to dig around to find out which Seagate model this really is.
