Hey all new to the HP world.
We have a HP P2000 G3 SAS storage array.
I am working on some basic alerts so we know when something is wrong with the box. My initial thinking was to use SNMP and monitor "Overall Unit Status:".
The issue is that after I pulled a drive and my hot spare started rebuilding the output of "Overall Unit Status" is still OK. I tested pulling the power from one of the power supplies and this caused "Overall Unit Status:" to report error which is great.
The array is in a degraded state, why in the world would the "Overall Unit Status:" still report "OK"? I see pulling a drive generated a "warning" type of alert, were as when I pulled one power supply it generated a "error" type of alert. Any reason behind any of this? I would think a drive going missing or dieing would be an error and not just a warning.
Maybe there is a better way of doing this, or a better oid to walk. I appreciate the input!
