I am running VMware ESXi 4.1 with VSphere client (free) on a HP DL360 G7 with Smart array P410 controller.

Is there a way to administer the arrays from within a VM ?

If a disk fails in my RAID 1 at the moment I dont see how I could replace it without rebooting the host and booting the smart start CD.
