Thank you for joining the General Questions community. I am sorry to hear you are having issues with the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager.
I would like to let you know that your current Intel® Matrix Storage Manager version is not supported on Windows® 10, actually this version is no longer available from our end; the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager was replaced by the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology. Unfortunately, the issue you are facing is related to the compatibility of this particular configuration and this makes a scenario really difficult to troubleshoot. I was trying to look for more drivers for your computer model and your operating system, but I was unable to find a recent version for Windows® 10, I found out that the latest operating system supported for your model is Windows 8 64-bit which could be another reason to add to this issue. At this stage, my recommendation is to try with one of the supported operating systems and the correspondingly Intel® Rapid Storage Technology. Here you can check the operating systems and the versions available: https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-z600-workstation/3718663
My apologies for the inconvenience.
HP did in fact have a compatible version of RST in their driver downloads, thanks.
To finish off this issue, while I was contemplating the install of RST, I downloaded and ran the HP Bios Configuration Utility, to save off the BIOS configuration in case RST made changes. Lo and Behold, after running the "/Get" command, the RAID status went to "Normal". Apparently reading the BIOS triggers it to update the status. This is probably only applicable to the Intel Matrix Storage manager in an old HP BIOS, but I see online others are having issues with stale status in the BIOS, perhaps a similar "Get" function will have the same effect.
