For the times that I do not install OMSA, I use LSI's MegaRAID Storage
Manager for Linux. (http://www.lsilogic.com)
I have used it on several Dell PowerEdge 1900's and 2900's with the PERC 5/i.
Once it is running, go to;
Tools => Configure => Monitor Configurator
and set up which alerts should send e-mail.
