Hello everyone. First post here.
Recently set up a RT3WB080 RAID controller on a new backup server. We have 8 consumer SSD disks tied into it. Working flawlessly so far, (despite how crazy hot this chip runs). My question is on the e-mail alerting functionality. Am I missing something or is it very vanilla and unconfigurable? I cannot set up ports or TLS authentication. We use Office365 for our cloud e-mail hosting and it requires TLS for everything. Does this mean I will never be able to e-mail alert or is there an update or a CLI option? I feel the need to monitor the chip and it's array because they are an off brand consumer SSD.
thanks for any info!
Are you using the Intel ® RAID Web Console 2 Client Only Installation?
RAID Web Console 2 Client Only Installation on the Client system doesn't support configuring email/alerting settings on local system.
On the management PC use Complete Installation of RAID Web Console 2 instead of Client Only.
The RAID Web Console 2 has extremely limited configuration options. If you have this chip installed in a server running Windows Server operating system, you can set up a local SMTP relay on the server, and point the RWC2 to the local server for mail delivery. That's how I have mine set up on Windows Server 2008 R2. Let me know if you don't know how to do this.
