I have the following:
- 2 x DL585 G1 (8 cores) with built in Smart Array 5i (4 x 74GB SCSI in Raid 5)
I installed VMware ESXi 5 and got it all working :)
When I boot my server up, it states the RAID is being checked etc, (The messages is "Disk performance optimization scan in progress") ( Good to use the pause button to stop at the POST )
First of all, the RAID is doing something, I do not think it is a rebuilding itself! On HD tune (HDD benchmarking Software) under 2008 R2 I get 18MB/s (hmm, not quite right).
So I would like to install the HP tools to see what is going on. Well I cannot, because under the "Device Manager" under 2008 R2, the controller is a vmware SCSI.
My question "How can install/access the hardware to check what is going on. Mainly for the RAID, I would like to install the HP RAID UTILITY.
