Hello,

I have a mixed environment of HP DL145, DL380, DL180 and DL585 servers that have P400 and P800 raid controllers in them. When I look at HP's website for software and drivers for the servers, I do see a raid controller monitoring service - but that only pops an event in the event log.When I had Dell servers I had software on them that would email me if a drive or a fan failed. I'd love to have that for the HP's because they're like 10 miles down the road so I'm not looking at them all day long.What do you use?

Please help

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

On CentOS Linux, we have webmin which will show on the panel if hard drives are having issues, but if you have the time you can always make a software that checks your hard drive's S.M.A.R.T statuses and if there's a specific value present have it do a command. Might be worth a shot :)
