Is there a Linux command line app that shows the status of a Dell PERC RAID array?

Thanks,

Thoughts on why it's not showing the PERC 5/i RAID array?

$ /opt/dell/srvadmin/bin/omreport storage controller
No controllers found

Nevermind, from the bottom of the manual:


To start the services needed for the OpenManage command line tools to work, issue

/usr/bin/srvadmin-services.sh start
or
/opt/dell/srvadmin/sbin/srvadmin-services.sh start
