I recently upgraded my ESX server with am areca 1210 controller. Is there any way to get monitoring to work so that I could get an email in the event of a hard disk failure or other environmental triggers?  Step by step would be appreciated.

By default, ESXi has a Hardware Monitor inbuilt which can be checked under Configuration -> Health Status using VI Client.

Are you using vCenter to manage your ESX Hosts ?

Since you are using vCenter to manage your Hosts, I suggest that you configure Alarms for any Hardware Problems which might arise in case of Hardware Failure.

If you need further instructions on how to create an Alarm, please update the thread so that I can provide you with the steps.

No problem,ged125

Login using VI Client to your vCenter.

Navigate to this path

Hosts and Clusters -> Alarms -> Definitions.

Right click on the blank window to create a new Alarm

Under the General Tab, choose Monitor a VM after providing a name and description for your Alarm

Then,under Triggers, create Host Hardware Health, configure Tolerance and Frequency levels under Reporting Tab and finally under Actions Tab, create a new Send a Notification Mail and add your email address

I will give this a try tonight, thanks!  Will this specifically respond to a RAID degradation?
