Hello,

I'm looking to get a notification when a Raid or Hardware failure appear on my HP Proliant server on 2008 R2 x64.

I don't want to use the HP SIM software because the size is like 2Gb so it's too big.

I just installed the following software:
HP ProLiant Smart Array SAS/SATA Event Notification Service for Windows Server 2008 x64 Editions and Windows Server 2012

Do you know if there is a way to use that ? I can't find the service, do you know how it works ?

Best regards

Install the entire Proliant Support Pack (now renamed service pack for Proliant). Then look under Start/Programs/HP Management Agents/Event Notifier Config and you should be able to configure a SMTP relay to send email notifications to. SNMP is still required since the SAS/SATA notification service sends SNMP internally and the event notifier recieves this and generates the email.

Bear in mind I haven't tried this lately though, can't see that HP would remove it since as you say full blown SIM is over the top for one or two servers. You used to configure what was monitored in control panel, don't suppose that has changed either.

Hello,

Thanks for your answer.

The size of the Service pack for Proliant is too big.

SPP-2011.09.0-0.zip (1.4 GB)

I'm not gonna overload the system with a bulls#!t giant service pack that i don't need :-)

But thank you for your answer, i'm sure this gonna be usefull for a lot of others users.

Best regards!

Yes, it contains drivers for all sorts of things you don't have, it won't install them if they're not needed but it is a big download. You can probably still bownload individual components such as the Event Notifier Service.
