Free Monitor, Free ESXi, Monitor Raid Hardware on Dell?

Post by mudtoe »

Hi folks:

I'm thinking about installing the free version of ESXi on my Dell 2950 server, and I wanted to find out if there was a way to monitor the hardware raid status once I did that, so that I'd know if a disk went bad. Will the free Veeam Monitor be able to do that on the free ESXi software? I read somewhere the SNMP was disabled in the free version of ESXi, so I wasn't sure if it was possible to monitor the condition of the raid array with that limition in place.

Mudtoe, yes version 4.0 should be able to do this, since it monitors hardware status via CIM/SMASH and not SNMP.

No precise ETA, but it should be out in just a few weeks.
