Hi,

You can install Openmanage Server administrator on the server for monitoring storage. http://www.dell.com/support/contents/us/en/19/article/Product-Support/Self-support-Knowledgebase/ent...

ok, but is it normal that storage info is not available through IDRAC interface?

This typically happens when the iDRAC initializes before the PERC. You can try doing a racadm racreset and see if it starts pulling the information, however you would probably have to do this every reboot.
