I need to monitor the array status of the Intel integrated RAID controllers (e.g. ICH7R, ICH9R, ICH10R) on multiple servers. Intel suggests using "Intel Matrix Storage Manager" or "Intel Rapid Storage Technology", but the programs do not provide way to automate or centralize the process of monitoring.
For some unspecified reason, I cannot parse the Windows event logs.
The "raidcfg32" and "CmdTool2" commands are not working correctly on my hardware (ESB2, 631xESB/632xESB).
What utility, API, WMI classes, or other method could I use to monitor my RAID arrays?
