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

how to use megacli

MegaCLI is RedHat only. Any solution suitable for Ubuntu ? – Raptor Feb 9 '12 at 12:11
