I have installed centOS 5 on our HP Proliant ML110 GH6 server and configured the Smart Array through BIOS

Now, i would like to set up an e-mail notification with the RAID status (especially if it's failed). When I searched through the packages available I found this one:

"dmraid-events-logwatch-1.0.0.rc13-63.el5.x86_64 - dmraid logwatch-based email reporting"

which is basically what I need.

So I installed it & I searched regarding this dmraid tool & found this "dmraid -r" command which gives you the details of your RAID.

Unfortunately mine gives me "No RAID disks".

I also went over this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidDebug but I got stuck when it tells you to try & find the metadata yourself :/

Any help is much appreciated!!


Result of "fdisk -l":

Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

I may be completly wrong but your not using fake raid your using real RAID, So wouldnt the OS just see this a single disk. Im not definite on this as I heard that some "Hardware Raids" arnt actually the real thing. –  Shutupsquare Jul 15 '11 at 8:16
    
I agree Steve. Post it as an answer and let me accept! –  PriceChild Jul 15 '11 at 8:19
    
@Steve Martin - I'm not really an expert regarding RAID types (fake, hardware, software) so I just searched over the internet to find some help and that's one of the links I found. I don't think that the OS is actually seeing 1 disk because I can both check hdparm -I /dev/sda & hdparm -I /dev/sdb –  hex4 Jul 15 '11 at 8:32
    
I had a conversation with a friend a couple months ago and he was saying that linux sees through a "Fake Hardware" and will show 2 disks where as windows would show just one disk, Can you post the output of fdisk -l (as super user) –  Shutupsquare Jul 15 '11 at 8:41
