Windows-Plugin: checks states of Intel Raid Controllers


check_intelraid is a Windows plugin for Nagios which checks the status of Intel Raid controllers.
The plugin determines the status of Raids, RAID-Controllers and of individual discs (S.M.A.R.T), while all stripe types are supported.


The Intel Raid configuration tool is installed (raidcfg32.exe).


Usually you open the script with the path to CLI:

C:> check_intelraid.exe path=<path_to_intel_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_intelraid.exe path=“C:\Program Files\Intel\RaidCfg“ debug

For information on the plugin and its usage you can call it with the help command:

C:> check_intelraid.exe help


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 exe:


Check Intel-Controller with 2 discs in Raid-1 composite, if everything is all right:

C:> check_intelraid.exe path=“C:\Program Files\Intel\RaidCfg“

Intel controller with 2 discs in Raid – 1 composite, one disc is plugged in, but dead

C:> check_intelraid.exe path=“C:\Program Files\Intel\RaidCfg“

Check Intel-Controller with 3 discs in Raid-5 composite, one broken disc (Status went to Critical) was changed, the subsequent rebuild unsuccessful:

C:> check_intelraid.exe path=“C:\Program Files\Intel\RaidCfg“
