HP Raid Status "Plugin"

  • At first my english is not like it should be, so I apologize for that.


    This Guide is for peoples who have one of the following HP Raid Array controller:


    Smart Array 5312 Controller
    Smart Array 5302 Controller
    Smart Array 5304 Controller
    Smart Array 532 Controller
    Smart Array 5i Controller
    Smart Array 641 Controller
    Smart Array 642 Controller
    Smart Array 6400 Controller
    Smart Array 6400 EM Controller
    Smart Array 6i Controller
    Smart Array P600 Controller
    Smart Array P400 Controller
    Smart Array P400i Controller
    Smart Array E200 Controller
    Smart Array E200i Controller
    Smart Array P800 Controller
    Smart Array E500 Controller
    Smart Array P700m Controller
    Smart Array P410i Controller
    Smart Array P411 Controller
    Smart Array P212 Controller
    Smart Array P712m Controller
    Smart Array B110i SATA RAID
    Smart Array P812 Controller
    Smart Array P220i Controller
    Smart Array P222 Controller
    Smart Array P420 Controller




    The following Guide is a compilation of individual contributions that I found in the internet but it brought me to the target. Anyway I am not responsible for this tutorial. Perhaps by copy & paste errors contained.


    For all next steps be sure you are logged in as root


    1. Download & Install hpacucli
    At first we have to install the tool 'hpacucli' and therefor we have to download and install the GPG key of the repository
    download the key:

    Code
    wget http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/repo/mcp/GPG-KEY-mcp -O /tmp/proliant.gpg


    installl the key:

    Code
    apt-key add /tmp/proliant.gpg


    create apt sources file for HP/Proliant repo

    Code
    echo -e "deb http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/repo/mcp/wheezy/current non-free" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/proliant.sources.list


    update apt & install hpacucli package

    Code
    apt-get update && apt-get install hpacucli


    2. Create a nice script to show all information of your controller and drives

    • Change your dir to /usr/sbin
    • open nano
    • put in the following code


    • save it named: hpraidinfo
    • now we have to make the script executable
    Code
    chmod -x /usr/sbin/hpraidinfo


    • if you have no access then
    Code
    chmod 755 /usr/sbin/hpraidinfo


    Time to try.
    root@OMV:~# hpraidinfo


    3. Make a "plugin"
    3.1 make js file

    • makedir /var/www/openmediavault/js/omv/module/admin/service/raidinfo
    • change dir to /var/www/openmediavault/js/omv/module/admin/service/raidinfo
    • open nano
    • put in the following code
    • save it named: raidinfo.js


    • makedir /var/www/openmediavault/js/omv/module/admin/service/raidinfo/hpraidinfo
    • change dir to /var/www/openmediavault/js/omv/module/admin/service/raidinfo/hpraidinfo
    • open nano
    • put in the following code


    • save file for example as: hpraidinfo.js

    3.2 Make inc file

    • change your dir to /usr/share/openmediavault/engined/rpc
    • open nano
    • put in the following code
    • save file for example as: raidinfo.inc

    Finally we have to restart the rpc service


    root@OMV:~# service openmediavault-engined restart



    Perhaps a admin or moderator can make a review of this guide??

  • With all that code, it won't be hard to turn it into a plugin. Give me a couple of days.

    Please read this before posting a question.
    Please don't PM for support... Too many PMs!

  • I will polish the script a little bit and adapt it to omv-sysinfo if you don't mind.


    was in Hungary without internet the last days ;)

  • @ oxidizer:
    can you please test the attached file if it is working?
    Put it in /usr/share/openmediavault/sysinfo/modules.d and run
    omv-sysinfo 31-hpraid


    Please post the output, because I don't have a HP RAID controller and can't test it


    Edit: updated script v0.3
    - added info "No controllers detected" if no HP RAID controller is available

  • root@OMV:~# omv-sysinfo 31-hpraid

    then...nothing. Sorry

  • sorry for the delay. Please try v0.3 of the script: http://forums.openmediavault.o…/1413-31-hpraid-v0-3-zip/


    BTW: the link doesn't work: http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/repo/mcp/wheezy/current


    here is a repo with more raid-tools:
    http://hwraid.le-vert.net/wiki/DebianPackages

    Code
    deb http://hwraid.le-vert.net/debian wheezy main


    GPG-Keys

    Code
    wget -O - http://hwraid.le-vert.net/debian/hwraid.le-vert.net.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -
  • Sorry for long waiting. Now your Version 0.3 works great. The output from omv-sysinfo 31-hpraid is as it should be:

  • Sorry for long waiting. Now your Version 0.3 works great. The output from omv-sysinfo 31-hpraid is as it should be:


    Now we have to wait for Aaron to make a plugin out of it.
    @ Aaron: please make sure, you are using this repos. Call info-output with:
    omv-sysinfo 31-hpraid

  • Do you really want this module showing up in the Report tab? If you put it in the modules folder, it will. Wouldn't you rather have this be a separate plugin?

    Please read this before posting a question.

  • I think, if someone has a HP-Raid controller it should show up in the report folder.
    And: Of course the output of "omv-sysinfo 31-hpraid" should also be displayed in a own "HP RAID" tab or submenu.


    I ported the code to "omv-sysinfo" because we can easily call it and it shows up in the report tab later. Wasn't it intended by Volker that "omv-sysinfo" can be extended by adding own modules?

  • Yes, that was the goal. Just making sure that is what was wanted.


    I will add a raid repo to support the hardware raid controller plugins that it looks like we can make from the utility in the repo you linked to.

  • Update to omv-extras 1.0.20.
    Enable the hwraid repo on the Seconday tab.
    openmediavault-hpraid should show up in the plugin list.


    The openmediavault-hpraid plugin should make a good skeleton plugin for other hwraid controllers as well.

  • Here is a script for LSI Controllers: https://calomel.org/megacli_lsi_commands.html

    Quote

    MegaCLI is the command line interface (CLI) binary used to communicate with the full LSI family of raid controllers found in Supermicro, DELL (PERC), ESXi and Intel servers. The program is a text based command line interface (CLI) and is comprised of a single static binary file. We are not a fan of graphical interfaces (GUI) and appreciate the control a command line program gives over a GUI solution. Using some simple shell scripting we can find out the health of the RAID, email ourselves about problems and work with failed drives.


    I don't have any RAID Controller and I won't port the script, but I thought posting it here is a good place. Maybe someone else will port/use it later.


    Edit:
    some more:

    many more can be monitored withe smartctl: http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/man/smartctl.8.html

  • Hi guys, I'm new in OMV (using it since few weeks) so allow me first to thank you all for your excellent work, OMV is a great product and the community plug-ins makes it even greater.


    My home server is an HP Microserver N54L with a HP P410 Smart Array raid card holding my storage volume (Raid 5).
    The "HP Raid" plugin was a very nice surprise for me as it took care of installing HP's monitoring and management tools, but what would make it really useful is to integrate it with the OMV Notifications feature (as "Software Raid" is).
    I've found some scripts to do just that (just google: 'email notification hp hpacucli') and I'm working in a script cron job to take care of that. But it would be really nice to have that integrated into Notifications, do you think it's possible to do?


    Thanks!!

  • We have to ask Volker to do that.
    Feel free to aks for a implementation of 3rd-party mail notifications on our bugtracker Mantis
    Thx

  • HI,


    First of all thanks for the fabulous work. I've tested the HPRaid plugin from omg-extras. Unfortunately, it doesn't works for me as my P420 firmware is too young. I have to use hpssacli instead of hpacucli.


    Below it's the diffs to enable hpssacli instead of hpacucli.



    Binary for hpssacli can be found here :


    http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/repo/mcp/pool/non-free/
    http://downloads.linux.hp.com/…ssacli-2.0-16.0_amd64.deb


    to install it dpkg -i hpssacli-2.0-16.0_amd64.deb


    and that's all !!!


    I think updating the hpraid plugin should be a good idea as hpssacli is compatible with old firmwares too.

  • I see there is no i386 version? I guess I could make a new version and only put it in the amd64 repo.
