You may want to look at smartd. smartd can email you about SMART errors
and run custom scripts when a problem occurs. It works well for us.
I don't think that hard drives, RAID cards, etc usually communicate with
the BMC (aka iDRAC) so it wouldn't have that information at the hardware
level. I could be wrong but that certainly seems to be the case.
