Linux Check The Health of Adaptec RAID array

How do I check the health of Adaptec RAID array under Fedora / CentOS / Red Hat Enterprise Linux / Debian / Ubuntu Linux server from a shell prompt?

 

First, visit official Adaptec web site to download utilities. You can also install utility software from CD / Floppy disk. Install the rpm file.

arcconf command

To view and modify other RAID configuration use arcconf program to view health of RAID array. Simply, login as the root and type the following command at a shell prompt:
# /usr/StorMan/arcconf getconfig 1
Sample output:
