Adaptec - StorMan - RAID


Gives information about physical disks and volumes of Adaptec SAS RAID controllers through the arcconf utility.

Connector ID: AdptStorManUnix


Typical platform: Any system with Adaptec

Operating systems: Oracle Solaris, Linux


Leverages: arcconf

Technology and protocols: System Commands

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

  • /[opt|usr]/StorMan/arcconf

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 hwsagent account:

hwsagent ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /[opt|usr]/StorMan/arcconf



hws HOSTNAME -t solaris -f AdptStorManUnix --ssh -u USER --sudo-command-list /[opt|usr]/StorMan/arcconf


- host:
    hostname: <HOSTNAME> # Change with actual host name
    type: solaris
  selectedConnectors: [ AdptStorManUnix ] # Optional, to load only this connector
    username: <USERNAME> # Change with actual credentials
    password: <PASSWORD> # Encrypted using hws-encrypt
    useSudo: true
    useSudoCommands: [ "/[opt|usr]/StorMan/arcconf" ]
