HP Proliant DL380 G6 and G7 RAID Array Monitoring and E-mail
Posted on 2011-10-31
Been searching for a solution to this, but without any luck!
I have two servers, (see title) where server 1 runs Windows Server 2008 R2 and the other one runs VMWare Vsphere, with Windwos Server 2008 R2's. I want to be notified if I have a hard disk failure or anything happens with my RAID's. I've looked into the HP Insight System Manager, but I find this software solution to be very "heavy" and it provides a lot more data than I need.
The servers are all in my workplace and I basically check the power supplies, and I access the servers each day via remote desktop. However I find it critical to get an instant notification if a hard drive failes.
Is there a "lighter" software which can provide what I need (e-mail notification in the event of a RAID issue)? It's of course important that it will work on both the basic physical server, and on the viritual server...
Thanks and best regards!
