One question more: Is it not possible to configure RAID status notifications mail IN WINDOWS (NOT in BIOS or ILO - that needs a licence that costs money)

So i had the idea to configure the RAID status notification mails in the windows tool "Smart Storage Manager" - but there is no option, so it seems. Is that not possible, to configure it just in windows - which meams i only get mails if windows is running.

If i don't habe an other option than to buy the licence for that feature: Can i disable the hardware RAID, so all HDDs / SDDs will be visible in the OS and then activate SW RAID in Windows or Linux or whatever...?

 

Thank you for your feedbacks.

The Array Controller will Trigger a Event in the Windows Log if something is happen.

And you can forward any Windows Event you like as Mail.

If you use Software Raid it is the same.

In the Past we have this Tool:

Thank you for your feedback! :-)

"The Array Controller will Trigger a Event in the Windows Log if something is happen."

...did you meant with Hardward RAID? Are the physical disks visible for windows (maybe through the drivers?), not just as one big virtual drive?

No, Windows sees only the Virtual Drives and does nothing know about the Physical World beyond.

But the HPE AMS Agent get the Information direct from iLO and provide it to Windows.

"AMS also enables iLO 4 to log events into the host operating systems’ native event log (Windows NT Event Log, local Syslog)."

Thx!! 

"AMS also enables iLO 4 to log events into the host operating systems’ native event log (Windows NT Event Log, local Syslog)."

...which means also if i don't have a special commercial feature for ILo?

Problem is with the manual on that link, that i don't know to parse for what texts in the windows system event log.... maybe somebody know what kind of text i need to process RAID messages?

If you have iLO Advanced, you can send Hardware Mail Alerts also direct from the iLO.

This is simple and works if OS is running or not.

Additional, if you configure iLO Remote Support Direct, the Server opens automatic a Support Case on Hardware failure.

How cool is this?

Hi

 

Thank you for your feedback. Yes, it's pretty cool, but it does not seems to be cool enough for my chief - he don't want to buy a licence for it...:-(

because of that, i ask here for an aliternative solution, e.g. to parse the windows system log then send a mail if there is an entry with a RAID problem...
