    Smile Monitoring Adaptec HW RAID (6805) with 12.04 and Nagios

    I recently spent a couple days trying to get software loaded that would let me monitor my Adaptec hardware RAID - drove me nuts not being able to find easy-to-follow instructions, so I want to write up my steps to save someone else some time.

    I have a Bytespeed 2U server with an Adaptec hardware RAID, 6805

    Various sources point to the fact that Adaptec doesn't release source code for monitors its RAID controllers, but does release some partially-working software. I found software for the 6805 here:

    Download Adaptec Storage Manager:

    http://www.adaptec.com/en-us/speed/r..._18837_tgz.htm

    Unzip / untar, copy arcconf to the server

    run the following:
    Code:
    sudo chmod +x arcconf
    sudo apt-get install libstdc++5
    sudo ./arcconf GETCONFIG 1
    For those that may need the info:
    chmod +x - give arcconf the ability to be ran
    libstdc++5: required for use with arcconf - will give errors w/out installing
    arcconf GETCONFIG 1: returns status of RAID controller #1

    The results from GETCONFIG should show your controller, statues, etc. I expect there are already Nagios plugins to monitor this info, but I'll post back as I figure this out.

    Example results from GETCONFIG:

    Talking Re: Monitoring Adaptec HW RAID (6805) with 12.04 and Nagios

    Thank you very much for your quick how-to! I managed to install this in no time and now I got access to my Adaptec 2405.

    Just a note to anyone looking for latest Adaptec Storage Monitor, go to your specific model's Adaptec page and click on Downloads, then click on Adaptec Storage Manager and from there you can find the latest version. Sorry if this is common knowledge for others but it took me a good 15 minutes to figure out where the latest version was

    Re: Monitoring Adaptec HW RAID (6805) with 12.04 and Nagios

    Adaptec controller status on Ubuntu 12.04 :

    To help those who come here for probleme of :
    - afacli in ubuntu 12.04
    - check status of aac Raid controllers of Adaptec

    The solution is here via a package of Debian/Ubuntu : http://hwraid.le-vert.net/

    In summary what to do for ubuntu 12.04 :
    Edit : /etc/apt/sources.list
    Add for binary on Ubuntu precise : deb http://hwraid.le-vert.net/ubuntu precise main
    Execute : apt-get update
    Execute : apt-get install aacraid-status
    Execute for controller info : arcconf GETCONFIG 1
    Execute for controller status : aacraid-status

    You've got it !
    Result :
    -- Controller informations --
    -- ID | Model | Status
    c0 | Adaptec 2410SA | Optimal

    -- Arrays informations --
    -- ID | Type | Size | Status | Task | Progress
    c0u0 | RAID5 | 313G | Optimal

    -- Disks informations
    -- ID | Model | Status
    c0u0d0 | ST332041 8AS | Online
    c0u0d1 | HDS72251 6VLSA80 | Online
    c0u0d2 | HDS72251 6VLSA80 | Online


    Thanks a lot for this great job on hwraid.le-vert.net for who want to use and manage and harware RAID on our favorite Linux OS.

    Command completed successfully.
    Sounds awesome, but when I try following those steps I get the following error:
    Code:
    ./arcconf: 1: ./arcconf: Syntax error: word unexpected (expecting ")")
    However using the second post with the debian packages works (you just have to remember to use 'sudo' to start with')
