Hello all,

I've inherited a PowerEdge T320 that utilizes a Dell PERC H310 RAID controller.

How would I go about checking the status of the RAID/drives?

You can monitor RAID/drives status using Open Manage Server Administrator (OMSA). It can be installed on Windows/Linux machines as well as on ESXi hosts.

Another option is to utilize Open Manage Essentials and monitor server hardware including RAID/disks via iDRAC/OMSA.
There you can specify alerts to be sent (to your e-mail for example) in case sth happens.

Hi,
or you can use only iDRAC. Which is the same as iLO for HP, IMM for IBM... if you are familiar with these brands.
