Query disk information from HP Proliant Servers through SNMP
Thursday - Aug 8th 2013 - by - (1 comments)

Although ILO already shows a great deal of information for HP Proliant Servers, some important information is still missing, for example firmware versions.

Such additional informaiton can be read out through SNMP, if the snmp-agents/insight agents were installed.
The base OID to use for HP servers is: 1.3.6.1.4.1.232.
A well documented MIB can be found here: http://www.mibsearch.com/vendors/Compaq/mibview/CPQIDA-MIB 

Here are some examples for disk/drive related lookups.

Show the current HP SmartArray Firmware version:

snmpwalk -v 2c -c public localhost 1.3.6.1.4.1.232.3.2.2.1.1.3
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.232.3.2.2.1.1.3.1 = STRING: "5.70"

 Check the current status for logical drives:

snmpwalk -v 2c -c public localhost 1.3.6.1.4.1.232.3.2.3.1.1.4
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.232.3.2.3.1.1.4.1.1 = INTEGER: 2
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.232.3.2.3.1.1.4.1.2 = INTEGER: 2
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.232.3.2.3.1.1.4.1.3 = INTEGER: 2
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.232.3.2.3.1.1.4.1.4 = INTEGER: 2

For each logical drive a status code is returned. Refer to the following table to translate:

1: other
8: wrongDrive
2: ok 9: badConnect
3: failed
10: overheating
4: unconfigured
11: shutdown
5: recovering
12: expanding
6: readyForRebuild 13: notAvailable
7: rebuilding 14: queuedForExpansion

Check the current status for physical drives:

snmpwalk -v 2c -c public localhost 1.3.6.1.4.1.232.3.2.5.1.1.6
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.232.3.2.5.1.1.6.1.8 = INTEGER: 2
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.232.3.2.5.1.1.6.1.9 = INTEGER: 2
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.232.3.2.5.1.1.6.1.10 = INTEGER: 2
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.232.3.2.5.1.1.6.1.11 = INTEGER: 2

Note that these are the physical drives. Use the following table to translate the returned number:

 1: other
 3: failed
 2: ok
 4: predictiveFailure

Note: A predictiveFailure will be shown as "Smart Error" in ILO.
