Hi All,

Background: I have HP RAID setups (Smart Array 5, shows up as 
/dev/cciss/c0d0) on my DL380s, and they run great with CentOS. I have 
had a drive failure (HDD lights up amber), so I pulled the HDD, replaced 
it and the RAID controller rebuilt the array in a jiffy - no probs.

My question: I cant find anything in the logs to alert me that a drive 
failed - this makes sense since the RAID is hardware, so i presume i 
need some management software however i cant find anything on HP or 
Compaq's sites to tell me what software i need to be running. I imaging 
it is something like cpq_alert or such.

Does anyone on the list run HP or Compaq hotswapable kit? How do you get 
alerted to failures?

Thanks,

MrKiwi
