thanks for reply.
Storage is now without error, after powercycle, I'll monitor it's status

I have installed software from MD3000 cd. Now, SMAgent is running on host.
From my desktop, I can connect directly to storage array or indirectly on 
SMAgent on our server.
I tried to configure mail alerts, but they are send only when i'm connected 
with PowerVault ModularDisk manager from my desktop  - I thought, tha SMAgent 
will send those emails for me.  We cannot run some desktop just to send 
Myabe i can get alerts using some ?nagios? plugin and SMCli?
