N-central Help

RAID Status (HP) service

The RAID Status (HP) service monitors the overall status of a RAID array on an HP/ProLiant server.

Special Note

This service operates in conjunction with the vendor-supplied hardware agent and requires SNMP to be configured so that it is accessible from both the SolarWinds N-central Agent and the SolarWinds N-central Probe.

The following are the requirements in order to associate this service with a device:

  • The device must undergo discovery using a Probe-based asset scan.
  • You need to enable SNMP enabled on the device on the Properties tab of the device.
  • Once you enable SNMP for the device, you need to configure a community string. The default community string is public.

Supported Systems/Applications HP Proliant Servers running HP Insight Manager 5.1 and later agents.
