How To Check The Heath Of Adaptec RAID Using arrconf On CentOS

by lifeLinux on October 9, 2013

The arcconf tool is used for managing the controller on the command-line interface and It use to check the health of Adaptec RAID under Linux server from a shell prompt. In this tutorial, I will show you How do I check the health of Adaptec RAID using arcconf command.

The first, login as root and type these following commands

# wget http://download.adaptec.com/raid/storage_manager/asm_linux_x64_v6_50_18579.tgz
# tar -zxf asm_linux_x64_v6_50_18579.tgz
# rm -f asm_linux_x64_v6_50_18579.tgz
# cd cmdline/
# chmod +x arcconf

If you’ll get this error when you try to run arcconf:

./arcconf: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Type the following command to fix it

# yum -y install compat-libstdc++-33

The second, to view and modify other RAID configuration use arcconf program to view health of RAID. Simply, login as the root and type the following command at a shell prompt

./arcconf GETCONFIG 1

Sample output:
