I've got a dell R410 with a PERC6/i in it. Four 2 TB SAS drives in RAID 5 (Seagate Constellation ES ST32000555SS). I noticed some serious latency in Vmware (up to 20,000ms) so I decided to boot into the RAID controller to see if there was anything wrong, when I noticed one of the disks was reporting a SMART error. I ran the quick hardware test from the LifeCycle controller and this disk failed those tests.
So the question is, how can I actually see these SMART errors without checking the RAID controller? I have and iDRAC6 but it doesn't seem to report anything on storage other then when a SAS cable is unplugged.
