Well, that message is pretty old, but since I was about to write the exact same thing, here goes. I was handed custody of 25 video servers, all running RAID 10 with Intel Matrix Storage Technology. The way I understand this, this "software" solution has absolutely no alert mechanism, email capability, over-the-network reporting or anything at all, short of VNCing into each individual machine to see drive healh ??? I tried a third party product that suited my needs exactly, but after a long troubleshoot, I stumbled upon CS-015002, which basically says that you can't use a third-party solution to monitor SMART and that's that. Can anyone please confirm the above statement is correct ? Before I go balistic and start firing people for choosing retarded technological solutions, I want to get my facts straight.
Thanks y'all !
