I have an HP ML150 G6, I"m using the onboard SATA RAID controller for a mirror.  The controller is a B110i.  I'd like to monitor a mirror rebuild from within the GUI.  I'm running this on Windows 2008 SBS.  Bob in India (literally) was unable to help.  He tells me it's an entry level server and the only way to check the drives is to reboot the machine.  Anyone have a better idea?
Thanx

unfortunately, there's not always software that can manage  RAID at the hardware level. India-Bob might be right.

However, did you try the links under the driver and agent section in this document:

So the software CP012453 doesn't see the controller?

There is an "HP Storage Manager" for the ML150 g5 so i imagine it will work on the g6.  It is version 5.0.x

I thought the ACU can be used to check the state of the B110i same as proper HP array controllers?
