| Is there a way on Dell R320 (two power supplies and hardware RAID-1)
| on
| centos
| to get a message that a power supply is failing or that one of the
| hardware RAID disks is failing?
| Sure there is the front panel - but no-one is there ...
| Is that reported to linux/centos some way?
| This is my first R320.
| Thanks,
| Jerry

You can use IPMI if the machine has it.  That way you get a consistent method to get many errors from the machine.
