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 batch file 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

For sending email, I would use blat. There are other options, like using a smal WSH (VB) Script or the like, but BLAT is easy to use, though a bit old. Get if from http://sourceforge.net/projects/blat/files/ .


@echo off

hpacucli.exe ctrl all show status > %temp%\hpstats.txt

find "Controller Status: OK" %temp%\hpstats.txt >nul || blat.exe %temp%\hpstats.txt -server YourSMPTServer -to You@YourDomain.com -f ValidSender@YourDomain.com -s "HP RAID Util error!"

del %temp%\hpstats.txt >nul 2>nul

Something like this. The host name is appended to the subject line.
@echo off

hpacucli.exe ctrl all show status > %temp%\hpstats.txt

find "Controller Status: OK" %temp%\hpstats.txt >nul || blat.exe %temp%\hpstats.txt -server YourSMPTServer -to You@YourDomain.com -f ValidSender@YourDomain.com -s "HP RAID Util error on %Computername%!"

del %temp%\hpstats.txt >nul 2>nul
