Raid Configurations Viewer


  • Is there any good software out on the market that will allow you to view current raid configurations on Dell servers running Windows Server 2003, 2008 R2, and 2012?

  • Hello,

    please contact Dell about this and not Microsoft. Microsoft is NOT responsible for the other vendors hardware. Thank you for understanding.

    Best regards

  • I didn't ask about hardware. I asked if anyone knew of any good SOFTWARE to use on Dell server running MICROSOFT server software.

  • Let me explain a little better.

    I have heard that Microsoft used to have a "Raid monitoring utility" but I have been unable to find anything of that nature........hence the posting in a Microsoft forum.

  • Hello Justin,

    You probably might want to try the Dell iDRAC 6 or 7 as this might be the best as it is shipped by Dell.

  • If you have Dell's OpenManage Server Administrator installed, it'll allow you to view the Hardware RAID array configuration(s), amongst items of the server. I don't know of an exclusive application to monitor/read HW RAID controllers though... To my experience, it's usually up to the manufacture to produce tools for Windows.
