NTFS File System Corruption

Going out on a limb, here, but would HP SIM catch something like file system corruption? We received an error in the System log:

"Source: Ntfs
Description: The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume..."

This is actually showing up on the shared drive of a cluster. Is it possible that hardware problems could cause file system corruption? I'm worried this may be a sign that the hard drive may be degraded.

Re: NTFS File System Corruption

HPSIM doesn't really pick up anything like that, it is up to the agents monitoring the Server to send the information (via snmp) back.
I do not believe the HP Agents would pick up that kind of thing.

With the HP Servers, the Firmware on the disks should report to the agents that a disk is about to fail (SMART). That can depend on where the disks are. If the disks are in a SAN you need to ensure you have the right agents monitoring the SAN.
