"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you don't have Server Administrator installed, you can download and install it - this will confirm the current RAID configuration (Storage>PERC>Virtual Disks).


Download and run to extract files, then run C:\Openmanage\windows\setup.exe. Choose Custom install and make sure Storage Management (and all sub features) is installed.

Go to System, then the Logs tab, making sure the subsection is "Hardware".
