How do I manage PERC 5/i RAID under Windows?
Posted on 2009-05-01
We have a non-Dell servers (we do have Supermicro) running disk arrays based on Dell PERC 5/i SATA/SAS controller. RAID volumes were set under card's BIOS, everything was recognized in Windows just fine. What is the utility we can use to manage our arrays (say, rebuild them, expand, check the status etc.)? Also, as the controller does not have audible failure alarm (and usually nobody is in the server room), how can we set notifications for disk failure events (we set RAID 5 volumes with hot spare)? Thank you.
