Just wanted to ask if anyone of you knows how can I monitor or install a diagnostic tool for adaptec raid card on ESXi 5.0 running plaform? Or any .vim package that I can install in esxi os. We are using an oem server running on Intel MotherBoard S5500BC. Any answers or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
This depends on the Adaptec card you have installed.
See this table from Adaptec: ESX 5i support for Adaptec RAID cards
You should search for CIM Provider for your card. Find an example driver here which includes RemoteARCCONF to configure the card remotely and monitor it remotely.
