OMSA on Precision

Thanks Bryan.  With that said, is there any way possible to report on
the CERC SATA RAID status without rebooting?

This system has a history of failed hard drives, but I think I fixed the
root cause (power supply).  I'd like to report RAID status at a frequent
interval to make sure it's not failing.

Workstations don't have a bmc/ipmi functionality in most cases.
Without this you don't have hardware reporting.
