Hello,

There is a command for monitoring the status of a RAID Hardware called hpacucli.exe (C:\Program Files (x86)\Compaq\Hpacucli\Bin\hpacucli.exe)...

The output of that command is

hpacucli.exe ctrl all show status

Smart Array B110i SATA RAID in Slot 0 (Embedded)
   Controller Status: OK

I need a script that could be added as a scheduled task  to check that the array is healthy, and if not, send an email informing of it.

Thanks in advance

Change username, Password, emails, etc - Compile this in Visual studio in a C# Windows app - just replace the code in the form with this and go to the release folder and get your exe - schedule it to run when ever - should do the trick

Thanks
