Have a Dell Server with a SAS 6/iR RAID Controller...but the OS is Win7 PRO (not Windows Server). The Controller is made by LSI but (I think) specifically for Dell.
During OS installation, Windows 7 Pro seemed to recognize the controller automatically...I did not have to load any special drivers. It shows up in the Device Manager and is correctly identified.
The server has dual SATA drives which appear as 1 volume to Windows 7 and the system seems to be running fine.
What I am hoping to find is a Utility that allows me to check the status of the drives. For example, if one of the drives fails...or has some other issue.
I think there are utilities for WIndows Server 2008 that do this, but I don't know about WIndows 7 PRO.
Is anyone else in a similar situation and know of a solution?
