Raid 1 degraded no emails from intel optane memory and storage app

So I have a brand new asus z790p board with raid 1 setup.  I have installed the newest drivers 19.5.1.1040 and the optane and storage app from the store version 18.1.1037.0 and set the notification settings for email up and no email is sent on raid 1 failure.  The test email works fine but soon as i shutdown pull a drive to simulate a failure and boot back up no email.  You see it degraded in the app and the notification center.  What do you have to do to get an email on a drive failure on a raid 1 array?  Why is the option in the app if it does not work?

Yes that link says no email features, but you can see in my screen shot the app does have that option. So what am to believe the app? or the article?

Quite simply, the email capability is newly restored, but the online documentation has not caught up with this fact.

IMHO, the issue with your experiment is that you power cycled. AFAIK, the app is not going to signal that a failure has occurred in this case; it is designed to alert you when an array fails on the fly. The BIOS is responsible for reporting anything prior to Windows being booted.

If you really must test this capability, you'll have to pull the SATA cable off at runtime. Not sure that is a great idea, however.

It does see it as degraded in the app and it did trigger a notification in notification center as expected but no email happened.  The bios does report an issue on post with the array.  Yeah I am a little leary of pulling an nvme hot. As I am not sure if the asus z790-p supports that feature.  Is this a bug in the app? Are you guys able to reach out to the developer and confirm the expected behavior of the app?

ICS will need to escalate that question (all my old contacts there have retired too!). @Alberto_R_Intel - Tag you're it.

Hello RSTHatesMe, I just received an update on this matter.


While we are still working on this case, could you please provide the SSU report using the link below and the test email you received when configuring the email notification? This is for escalation purposes and to do further research:

The ssu report is attached.  The upload button link in the app did not work so it is attached as a .txt file. Also attached is a photo of the test email.
