Enables chassis alarm that sounds when events are detected that degrade RAID support (drive content mirroring) on a service platform

The NX9500 series service platforms include a single Intel MegaRAID controller (virtual drive) with RAID-1 mirroring support enabled. The online virtual drive supports up to two physical drives that could require hot spare substitution if a drive were to fail. The WiNG software allows you to manage the RAID controller event alarm and syslogs supporting the array hardware from the service platform user interface without rebooting the service platform BIOS.

Although RAID controller drive arrays are available only on the NX9500 series service platforms, they can be administrated on behalf of a NX9500 profile by a different model service platform or wireless controller.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Service Platforms — NX7500, NX9500, NX9600
