Solaris help!

We’ve got the new database server finally ready to roll, except for one thing: We don’t know how to monitor the hardware RAID array.

Under Linux we would use mpt-status, but this doesn’t work for Solaris. Does anyone know how to get Solaris to tell us about the state of the hardware RAID array? If one of the drives in the array goes away, we want to know about it as soon as possible.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

UPDATE: Our very own inhouseuk had the answer: raidctl — a utility that was installed all along!

  1. Try raidctl

    If installed it should give a list of devices and their status. It’s easy to then script it via cron to send a notification via email etc….
