    IBM ServeRAID-MR10i SAS/SATA Controller

    frama

      Good afternoon Thwack-Folks!

       

      I do have a question about the "Current Hardware Health"-status of one of my nodes. Under the sensor name "Array" it shows me:

       

      IBM ServeRAID-MR10i SAS/SATA Controller / Critical

      Logical Disk 0 on Controller 0 / Optimal / 67.055 GB

      Logical Disk 1 on Controller 0 / Optimal / 134.109 GB

      SAS3444E / Ok


      So far so good. Opening the MegaRAID Storage Manager v13.01.04 shows me a status "Optimal".

      I went through the logs, but I can not find any problems at all.

       

      Maybe you have some helpful hints.

      Thank you in advance
