HP ProLiant BL, DL, and ML Server Series - How to Retrieve Hard Drive Failure Events on Low-End ProLiant Servers
The low-end HP ProLiant Server series ML, DL and BL have no HP management agents available to load on top of the operating system. For that reason, drive failure reporting is not available as an SNMP trap from that server.
However, if the low-end HP ProLiant ML, DL or BL server has an onboard/embedded or stand-up PCI card with a supported Serial ATA (SATA) RAID function that is supported by the HP Storage Manager software, then this enables the SNMP, and an email alert functionality for drive failures from within the operating system.
There is an email alert functionality built into the HP Storage Manager, so emails are sent out when the drive logical state is changing, and the drives are failing.
The requirements for HP Storage Manager to manage the array are (only for SATA RAID enabled volumes):
