Linux On HP ProLiant: Verifying Hard Disk & Smart Array Problem From OS Level

Prologue
My friend who is from other team told me there’s hard disk problem one of my server. Too lazy to go to datacenter, I’m just using HP utility to confirm.

Server Info
Operating System,
-sh-2.05b# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 2)

Hardware,
-sh-2.05b# hpasmcli -s "show server" | grep System
System : ProLiant DL380 G4

Commands To Verify

    • Hard Disk
      -sh-2.05b# hplog -v | tail
