The current HP Tools, which are available in Debian through an external repository maintained by HP itsself, do not understand newer Kernels starting with the transition to 3.0 – so it won’t find any raid array controllers or devices.
I’m keen on using hpacucli to monitor hard raid controllers, and the devices themselves – e.g. using check_cciss
In order to comply with this “situation”, someone wrote a wrapper faking the 2.6 environment, and running the command afterwards.
Download and “install” it like this …
# cd /usr/lib/nagios/plugins # mkdir uname26 ; cd uname26 # wget http://mirror.linux.org.au/linux/kernel/people/ak/uname26/Makefile # wget http://mirror.linux.org.au/linux/kernel/people/ak/uname26/uname26.c # make # cp uname26 /usr/sbin
and call the cli tool like this (edit the scripts to add the uname26 call as well)
# /usr/sbin/uname26 hpacucli ctrl slot=11 pd all show status
Until there are maybe new binaries available supporting the 3.0 linux kernel.
