I realize this isn’t a good way to get a notification on disk failure, but it will let you login to locally look at the drive configs with something like Adaptec Storage Manager. This was the for the Adaptec Storage Manager. Please enter a title. It doesn’t “see” the individual drives that make up the array. The installer for Intel Storage Matrix Manager exits with the error: ESXi is booting fine, but looks like it’s unable to detect the raid controller properly, since i cannot see a single raid 5 logical drive, but 3 separate sata drives.

Msi 5000V Master Adaptec ESB2 Sata Raid Driver

For example, with our own virtualization purposes we will run the latest Xenified kernel 2. It can however be 1 monitored remotely, 2 send email notification and 3 send SNMP traps. I used the R2 version of the x64 RAID driver to have the array recognized by the installer.

It just sees the abstracted RAID volume as a disk drive and the controller. Have you ever simply removed one of the drives from the running system? I’m also intresseted in compiling ESB2 driver for XS let me know if someone knows how to do that, I tried with intel driver and compile it with DDK but it never worked.


We are working on a fix. Begin typing your search above and press return to search. The free version of PA Server Monitor for example can monitor both of those and send alerts. How do you monitor your RAID array?

Installing CentOS with Adaptec Series 7 RAID Controllers

Because the process of manually checking, downloading, and installing all of the device drivers on even a single computer is so incredibly tedious and challenging, even computer technicians rely on the power of Driver Detective for driver maintenance. Share this post Link to post. I am using the Gui, however the MSI includes both command line tools as well as a plugin to the MS Storage Service that I didn’t use which should let you query your array status.

Hi Chris, With rakd DDK, it will be possible for you to build the driver, however it will be quite a challenge to get this working with the XenServer installer.

I think your first step is to locate what information is available within Windows about this array, or about the physical drives. Correct Answers – 10 points. Press Esc to cancel.

So, it’s not a single controller’s lack of support, but an ESXi limit. The Adaptec Storage Manager sorta works but doesn’t really get me where I want to be. In doing so, detailing some of the issues encountered with an otherwise trivial task on a very new piece of hardware.


Microsoft has WMI Explorer tools, but this is kind of a needle in the haystack using a gui.

I already had issues like that, some resolved, some not However, if you accidentally install the wrong driver, then your computer will be executing the wrong directions. If you find and older version you may have some success.

DougN 2 7 Failing to do so will cause a kernel panic on boot and you will need to manually select the originally installed or correctly configured kernel to boot normally. Thanks for the response. This server is going off-site and it would nice to know that a edb2 has died without physically having to look at the Blinking Lights.

Server Fault works best with JavaScript enabled. You might discover that there is a MIB for monitoring that controller in there somewhere.

I’d imagine that the logical drive appears as a single physical raidd to the OS? Go to original post.
