Monitoring SAN-Disk Status RRS feed

  • Question

  • hey folks

    is there a simple way, to monitor the status of SAN-Disks (attached on server with emulex hba-FC-card)?

    we had the following issue: the san-disk was connected through two separated fibre-links to our system. both fibre-links had link-status green (SAN-Switch), but in the windows operating system, there was some issue with the mpio-driver and one link was down.

    i was reviewing the server management-pack, but couldnt find any monitors or rules, who will tracking such events? (maybe enabling physical-disk-monitoring?)

    how do you monitor san-disks in your environment?

    - logging windows event-logs? (source mpio?)

    - tracking status with WMI?

    - PS-Script? (but how to implement in a proper way to scom)

    - official management-pack?

    - ....

    thanks for some inputs, ideas, hints!

    cheers :-)

  • Hi,

    See if you can find a management pack from the hardware (SAN) vendor. Check the Event Viewer for errors
    and create a monitor
