Here is my config:
- Supermicro X7DBU;
- 3ware 9650 RAID Controller - driver installed, I use it as main datastore;
- managing the hypervisor with VMware vSphere Client 5.0.0 on Windows 2003 Server;
I have read that under the Configuration Tab on the client, Under Health Status, I should be able to see more hardware information than is displayed on the screenshot below.
What I want is very simple - a way to monitor the hardware status of the server as well as the RAID array state. Now, I have no way to know if a drive has failed, if the temperature is high, etc. I managed to install 3ware RAID CLI (
tw_cli) and possibly this would help, but it solves the problem only partially.
The best solution should be a free one, as I have only this server and no money to spend on it.
How I can approach this?
