VRTX RAID monitoring via SNMP

Hello,

We want to monitor RAID status on our Dell VRTX server via SNMP.

I've downloaded DELL-RAC-MIB.mib from VRTX CMC, but there's no OID for RAID status - only some global system status (which is overall chassis status).

Maybe it is possible to monitor it via IPMI?

PS. We don't want to monitor RAID status on each blade, only for 'whole chassis'.

Thanks for help.

Hello,

Please use Dell OME (OpenManage Essentials).  See the White Papers ( Section V on page 12) for VRTX with OME here>

Let us know if that helps.

Hello,

We don't want to use next management system, we already have Zabbix monitoring system (for switches and other Dell servers) - all we need is proper OID or key for IPMI.

Hi, 

Please see the MIB download below: 
http://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER01996273M/1/Dell-OM-MIBS-740_A00.zip

If you get a download error, our server is having some issues at the moment, so please try again when you get a chance.

Hello,

I found: globalStorageStatus (oid: .1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10892.5.2.3) -  "This attribute defines the overall storage status being monitored by the remote access card." - but it doesn't works on CMC - "No Such Object available on this agent at this OID".
