How to see RAID Status (any monitoring!) - Ubuntu 11.10 Smart Array P410 (Urgent!)

Hi.

 

As there is no version of hpacucli availble for Ubuntu 11.10 I cannot find ANY way of monitoring RAID status (without rebooting).

 

I believe due to the 3.0.x kernel prvious versions of the hpacucli tool do not work...

 

I have installed hpacucli v 8.70-8.0.2-2   (from ubuntu 11.04).

 

------------------------------------------

=> ctrl all show detail

Error: No controllers detected.
------------------------------------------

 

This tool works on older version of Ubuntu on same HW.

 

Does anyone have any way of just checking the RAID status - thats all I want to do.

 

Any help would be really welcomed.

 

Is anyone running kernel 3.x and able to monitor RAID on similar HW.

 

 

Regards

I have found a solution

 

http://mirror.anl.gov/pub/linux/kernel/people/ak/uname26/

 

- compile uname26.c

 

run hpacucli with

 

./uname26 hpacucli

 

- It works fine.

 

So the issue is hp's tools can't handle a 3.x kernel (yet)
