I've got a Red Hat 5.1 server 64-bit Dell 2950 with a PERC 5/i controller that until recently was working fine.
On it I have an NRPE command check_openmange that started returning errors:
/usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_openmanage Storage Error! No controllers found Problem running 'omreport chassis memory': Error: Memory object not found Problem running 'omreport chassis fans': Error! No fan probes found on this system. Problem running 'omreport chassis temps': Error! No temperature probes found on this system. Problem running 'omreport chassis volts': Error! No voltage probes found on this system.
Obviously these components exist as the system is up and running. I can access the web interface for Dell Open Manage and it reports everything is green.
Check openmange uses the omreport tool and this generates the above error directly:
[root@lynx tmp]# omreport storage controller No controllers found
I've found a number of threads online relating to issues with OMSA and 64-bit RHEL 5 and CentOS 5 where they suggest running the 32-bit software on 64-bit systems:
However I'm already running the 32-bit software:
Installed Packages Name : srvadmin-storage Arch : i386 Version: 6.5.0 Release: 1.201.2.el5 Size : 8.4 M Repo : installed Summary: Storage Management accessors package, 3.5.0
Moreover most of these posts seem related to a PERC 4 and mine is a PERC 5. This check and report was stable until recently and has had production load on it for a number of months which makes me hesitant to take these steps. I have not however found any good indication of why this behavior changed.
Has anyone experienced this issue with PERC 5?
Does anyone have further thoughts on diagnosis steps or solutions?
