HP-UX - Smart Array RAID


Display the physical disks connected to a Smart Array Controller and any configured logical drive and spare drive.

Connector ID: HPUXSAUtil

This connector is superseded by:


Typical platforms: HP 9000, HP Integrity, HP SuperDome

Operating system: HP-UX


Leverages: HP-UX Smart Array Configuration Utility

Technology and protocols: System Commands

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

  • /opt/raidsa/bin/sautil

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/raidsa/bin/sautil



hws HOSTNAME -t hp -f HPUXSAUtil --ssh -u USER --sudo-command-list /opt/raidsa/bin/sautil


- host:
    hostname: <HOSTNAME> # Change with actual host name
    type: hp
  selectedConnectors: [ HPUXSAUtil ] # Optional, to load only this connector
    username: <USERNAME> # Change with actual credentials
    password: <PASSWORD> # Encrypted using hws-encrypt
    useSudo: true
    useSudoCommands: [ "/opt/raidsa/bin/sautil" ]
