HP RHEL Array Raid Disk Status from command line – Managing your servers can streamline the performance of your team by allowing them to complete complex tasks faster. Plus, it can enable them to detect problems early on before they get out of hand and compromise your business. As a result, the risk of experiencing operational setbacks is drastically lower.

But the only way to make the most of your server management is to perform it correctly. And to help you do so, this article will share nine tips on improving your server management and fix some problem about linux, redhat, hp-smart-array, raid5, .

I’ve configured a HP DL360 Gen 9 with 6 disks and raid 5 and i’ve installed RHEL 6.9 on it.

I need to know, from command line, the status of every single physical disk so i could grep info to an appplication we are developing.

I’ve been in touch with several guides that suggested to use HPACUCLI command but after i’ve installed the package seems it does not found any controller.

with ctrl all show status or config it says:
No controllers found

More info on this server are:

Controller is the P440R

I’ve some doubts about the compatibility of the hpacucli with this HW.

Anyone has an alternative idea on how to monitor the “single” disk status to understand if it is ok, there are some errors or it is faulty?



Solution :

For RHEL, use the HP management agents to obtain overall system health. This includes the hp-snmp-agents and hpssacli

See this for a more comprehensive list: Monitoring an HP ProLiant DL380 G7 without the bloat

This can provide SNMP and email alerts about the system, including disk health. These entries are also reported in the IML log (see hplog -v)

However, if you think it’s best to parse the output of the array controller’s status (I don’t), you can do this with:

# hpssacli ctrl all show config

Smart Array P440ar in Slot 0 (Embedded)   (sn: PDNLH0BRH7U8IK)

   Port Name: 1I

   Port Name: 2I

   Internal Drive Cage at Port 1I, Box 3, OK

   Internal Drive Cage at Port 2I, Box 3, OK
   array A (SAS, Unused Space: 2906103  MB)

      logicaldrive 1 (72.0 GB, RAID 1+0, OK)
      logicaldrive 2 (1024.0 GB, RAID 1+0, OK)

      physicaldrive 1I:3:1 (port 1I:box 3:bay 1, SAS, 900.1 GB, OK)
      physicaldrive 1I:3:2 (port 1I:box 3:bay 2, SAS, 900.1 GB, OK)
      physicaldrive 1I:3:3 (port 1I:box 3:bay 3, SAS, 900.1 GB, OK)
      physicaldrive 1I:3:4 (port 1I:box 3:bay 4, SAS, 900.1 GB, OK)
      physicaldrive 2I:3:5 (port 2I:box 3:bay 5, SAS, 900.1 GB, OK)
      physicaldrive 2I:3:6 (port 2I:box 3:bay 6, SAS, 900.1 GB, OK)

In recent versions, HPACUCLI has been replaced by HPSSACLI.

Thank you.. i’ve found the issue…

i’ve tryied also hpssacli but it doesnt work, so i tried several version and i found that the only that works is hpssacli-2.30-6.0.x86_64

just to help other users.. in case of
DL360G9 – Array P440 – RHEL

you must use the hpssacli-2.30-6.0.x86_64 😉
