PERC5/i monitoring on OpenSUSE 11.1...

That's interesting. I am using the Perc5/i under RHEL 5.3 and MegaCLI works just fine.

# modinfo megaraid_sas
filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.18-128.1.1.el5/kernel/drivers/scsi/megaraid/megaraid_sas.ko
description:    LSI MegaRAID SAS Driver
author:         megaraidlinux at lsi.com
version:        00.00.04.01-RH1
license:        GPL


 
# ./MegaCli64 -adpCount


Controller Count: 1.

Exit Code: 0x01

# ./MegaCli64 -v


      MegaCLI SAS RAID Management Tool  Ver 2.00.12 April 25, 2008

    (c)Copyright 2008, LSI Logic Corporation, All Rights Reserved.

Exit Code: 0x00


I gave up on OMSA after seeing how much extra crap I would have to keep updating, so I am using a script (that wraps around MegaCLI) provided by someone on this list that drops me an e-mail every morning with the status of the RAID like so:

[Adapter 0]
PD[8:0]=(SEAGATE/ST373454SS/S4113/KP3MYPL) ME=0,OE=0,PF=0,FW=Online,F=None
PD[8:1]=(SEAGATE/ST373454SS/S4113/KP3QNVM) ME=0,OE=0,PF=0,FW=Online,F=None
PD[8:2]=(SEAGATE/ST3146854SS/S4113/KN2FKMY) ME=0,OE=0,PF=0,FW=Online,F=None
PD[8:3]=(SEAGATE/ST3146854SS/S4113/KN2FJJL) ME=0,OE=0,PF=0,FW=Online,F=None
PD[8:4]=(SEAGATE/ST3146854SS/S4113/KN2FKYX) ME=0,OE=0,PF=0,FW=Online,F=None
VD[0:0]=(,R(1,0,0),69376MB,#2,Optimal)
VD[0:1]=(,R(5,0,3),278784MB,#3,Optimal)

No real-time notices, but it works well enough.

Hi there,

I've recently upgraded a server to OpenSUSE 11.1. I figured that OMSA does not support RAID monitoring even though basic system monitoring (temperature etc.) works fine.

Now I went the "monitor via MegaRAID Storage Manager" route - and failed. It looks like it is currently impossible to get ANY monitoring of a PERC5/i with OpenSUSE 11.1. I tried MegaCli - no adapters found.

# modinfo megaraid_sas
filename:
/lib/modules/2.6.27.7-9-default/kernel/drivers/scsi/megaraid/megaraid_sas.ko
description:    LSI MegaRAID SAS Driver
author:         megaraidlinux at lsi.com
version:        00.00.04.01
license:        GPL

(Newest dkms module available from OMSA repos is v00.00.03.21 and it doesn't build on OpenSUSE 11.0 either.)

Does anybody monitor a PERC5/i using the LSI tools and has some clue on where to look next?

Thanks,

Tino.
