Hi, I have a poweredge T110 II
It came with OpenManage Systems management tools version 7.3.0
I'm pretty sure what I'm looking for is on this cd, but not sure what I need to install.
What I'm intested in is looking at the status of my mirrored drives while in the windows environment. I don't see a way to do that other than at boot time but I think it may be part Dell Open Manage Server Administrator software.
can someone make a recommendation on what I should install from this DVD?

Yes, I believe the "Storage Dashboard" should show you what you're looking for.  It's part of the software.


Edit: And regarding to what you should specifically install from the DVD, I would do a full installation of all the utilities.  You can then test each one and see what gives you the added utility you're looking for.

Yes specifically install Dell Open Manage Server Administrator - that will show you all you need to see...

Once installed it creates shortcut on desktop called Server Administrator - open that and it will open a browser and you login with your admin credentials(the server/domain admin account normally)

Should be plain sailing from there

Yep, if you install Dell Open Manage Server Administrator software it will give you information on all the server hardware including the Storage.

It's a very useful tool.

Cheers,
