Windows-Plugin: checks the status of Adaptec Raid Controllers (can also be used for ICP or PMC Vortex Controller)

Descprition

check_arcconf is a Windows plugin for Nagios which checks the status of Adaptec Raid Controllers (can also be used for ICP or PMC Vortex Controller).
The plugin determines the status of Raidsets, RAID-Controllers and of individual discs (S.M.A.R.T), while all stripe sets are supported.

Requirements

The Adaptec Commandline Tool is installed (arcconf.exe).

Documentation

Usually you run the plugint with the path to CLI: C:> check_arcconf.exe path=<path_to_adaptec_cli> For debugging purposes, it may also be called with a more detailed output option (this mode is not suitable for continuous operation, but for testing purposes only). Afterwards it will output the detailed status of the individual components: C:> check_arcconf.exe path=“C:\Program Files\Adaptec\maxView Storage Manager“ debug

Path: C:\Program Files\Adaptec\maxView Storage Manager
Args: getconfig 1 al

check_arcconf plugin for Nagios. Monitors integrity of a RAID System with arcconf

Usage:
    path - Full path to arcconf.exe (required)
    args - Arguments for arcconf.exe (default = 'getconfig 1 al')
    timeout - Seconds before the plugin times out (default = 15)
    version - Plugin version
    help - Show this text
    debug - Print details. NOT for use with nagios

Installation

Preferably the plugin is copied into the script directory where you will store your checks under Windows

When using NSClient ++ an entry in NSC.INI similar to this is generated and pointed to Adaptec Commandline Tool:

...
[/modules]
NRPEServer=enabled
CheckExternalScripts=enabled

[/settings/NRPE/server] 
allow arguments=true  

[/settings/external scripts/scripts] 
check_arcconf=scripts\check_arcconf.exe path=“c:\program files\adaptec storage manager“
...

Examples

Check ICP-Controller, if everything is all right: C:> check_arcconf path=“C:\Programme\ICP Storage Manager“

RAID OK: Ctrl: ICP 5405 - Slot: 4 (Optimal) - Drive: RAID10 [RAID10] (Optimal) - Disk: Device #0 (Online) - SMART: No - Disk: Device #1 (Online) - SMART: No - Disk: Device #2 (Online) - SMART: No - Disk: Device #3 (Online) - SMART: No

Broken Disc was changed: C:> check_arcconf path=“C:\Programme\Adaptec Storage Manager“
RAID WARNING: Ctrl: Adaptec 6405 - Slot: 4 (Warning) - Drive: RAID10 [RAID10] (Warning) - Disk: Device #0 (Rebuilding 65%) - SMART: No - Disk: Device #1 (Online) - SMART: No - Disk: Device #2 (Online) - SMART: No - Disk: Device #3 (Online) - SMART: No

Error in Raidset after failed hard disc 1, disc went offline afterwards: C:> check_arcconf path=“C:\Program Files\Adaptec\maxView Storage Manager“
RAID CRITICAL: Ctrl: Adaptec 6445 - Slot: 6 (Optimal) - Drive: RAID-1 [RAID1] (Optimal) - Drive: RAID-0 [RAIDSimple_volume] (Optimal) - Drive: RAID-5 [RAID5] (Failed) - Disk: Device #0 (Online) - SMART: No - Disk: Device #1 (Offline) - SMART: Yes - Disk: Device #2 (Online) - SMART: No - Disk: Device #3 (Online) - SMART: No - Disk: Device #4 (Online) - SMART: No - Disk: Device #5 (Online) - SMART: No
