LSI sas2ircu Managed Raid Controllers


Gives physical disk and array status.

Connector ID: LSIsas2ircu

This connector supersedes:


Typical platform: Any system with LSI sas2ircu

Operating system: Linux


Leverages: Sas2Ircu (LSI) managed RAID card

Technology and protocols: System Commands

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

  • /opt/lsi/bin/sas2ircu

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/lsi/bin/sas2ircu



hws HOSTNAME -t linux -f LSIsas2ircu --ssh -u USER --sudo-command-list /opt/lsi/bin/sas2ircu


- host:
    hostname: <HOSTNAME> # Change with actual host name
    type: linux
  selectedConnectors: [ LSIsas2ircu ] # Optional, to load only this connector
    username: <USERNAME> # Change with actual credentials
    password: <PASSWORD> # Encrypted using hws-encrypt
    useSudo: true
    useSudoCommands: [ "/opt/lsi/bin/sas2ircu" ]
