I got an IBM x3550 M3 server, with 6x 300GB SAS HDD installed, running in RAID10. Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS is installed. For RAID card, I'm using ServeRAID M5014.

If a HDD is replaced, how can I know the RAID rebuild status?

For software RAID, you can check the status with cat /proc/mdstat/. I don't know if that will work for hardware raid cards though. –  Nick Feb 9 '12 at 7:33

i forgot if it's working or not on your case, but i ever use it (using different raid card). use MegaCLI util to show your raid status http://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/docdisplay?lndocid=MIGR-5073015

MegaCLI is RedHat only. Any solution suitable for Ubuntu ? –  Raptor Feb 9 '12 at 12:11
    
i see, it's rpm. may be you try using alien to convert rpm to deb ? howtogeek.com/howto/ubuntu/…. or use this hwraid.le-vert.net/wiki/DebianPackages hope that all work –  Rikih Feb 10 '12 at 1:10
    
I used alien to convert to deb, but errors occurred. See: pastebin.com/saTCZkhM –  Raptor Feb 10 '12 at 3:52
    
how about hwraid.le-vert.net/wiki/DebianPackages ?, it's debian package and seem support for megacli. –  Rikih Feb 10 '12 at 4:10
