need to setup hard disk failure notification

Hey all,

 

looking to setup notification on our hp servers in the event of disk failure to relay through our local smtp server. Is there a quick guide on this because I've waded through loads of web pages with no conclusion?

In Linux you can use smartctl or smartd to monitor the disks behind a smart array controller.

Re: need to setup hard disk failure notification

Tnx very much but unfortunately we're a full windows environment. Is there any HP proprietary software that we can use from a windows 2003 or 2008 server to monitor this? I know dell offers something but I can't seem to find anything specific for HP?
