I have a simple Supermicro SC733T server. There are 2 SATA HDD disks in the server. I configured RAID1 with the 2 HDD (TOSHIBA HDWD110). The raid controller is Intel Corporation C600/X79 series chipset SATA RAID Controller. The OS used is Ubuntu Server 16.04.3 LTS.
Then I set up Super Doctor 5 (it has Web interface) provided by Supermicro for monitoring health of servers. It shows all info, except for the HDD drives. It says that the status is
unknown. When I enter the RAID Controller configuration during the startup using Ctrl-I it shows info and that the status is OK.
I want to see the current status of HDD disks through the Super Doctor 5 utility. I also followed the instructions on how to setup SNMP extension during the Super Doctor 5 installation but it did not help.
It's really annoying, since if I were using software raid then I could see the health of the disks using the OS tools, but here I use hardware raid controller and it does not provide the information in the specialized utility provided by Supermicro.
Any ideas how to solve the problem?
