Connector file name: MS_HW_SunRaidctl.hdf

This connector is superseded by:


This connector discovers and monitors physical disks and logical disks behind a physical RAID controller.


Typical platform: Oracle/Sun

Operating system: Oracle Solaris


Leverages: Sun Solaris system commands (raidctl)

Technology and protocols: System Commands

This connector requires advanced privileges on the managed host for the command below:

  • /usr/sbin/raidctl

This connector therefore needs to run as root or you need to configure a privilege-escalation mechanism like sudo on the managed host to allow the monitoring account to run the command listed above.

Sample of /etc/sudoers to allow the above command to be run as root by the patrol account:

patrol ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/raidctl
