Hi Mohan,

Thanks for the links, I'm afraid we're running 6.1 here, I never managed 
to get 6.2 to work. I got as far as supporting all the ipmi checks but 
couldn't get it to find the perc storage controllers. I followed all the 
guides on here about installing extra dependencies too.

I might try allocating it as a global hot spare then, although some of 
the arrays have drives larger than it's capacity.

sudo omconfig storage pdisk action=assigndedicatedhotspare controller=1 
vdisk=0 pdisk=1:0:1 assign=yes
Error! Unrecognized parameter value:
