Monitor Adaptec SATA RAID in vSphere Hypervisor 5.1

Hello.

Does anybody know how I can monitor my Adaptec 2820SA SATA RAID in vSphere Hypervisor 5.1?

I'd like to get notified in case of disk malfunction etc, as of now I need to either reboot to check in the Adaptec BIOS, or physically open the server cabinet to check the LEDs on the RAID controller.

Needless to say, that's just awful...

Anders.

Hi Anders,

This post contains a link to the new CIM drivers, this should do the trick.

I ran into the same issue and I'm currently investigating this.

Thanks, I'll look into it when I'm back home from the hospital and mark your post as helpful or solution depending of what I'll find out! 🙂
