Changing the alarm settings

Note: This action is not supported in bootable-CD mode.

Warning and Error events cause an audible alarm to sound every five minutes, notifying you of the event. Any Error or Warning event can trigger the alarm if the event causes the system to enter the critical state or the event arrives while the system status is critical. Once triggered, the repeating alarm continues to sound as long as any system in the ServeRAID Manager Enterprise view is critical.

Some events, such as the non-warranted drive event, do not affect the system status in the Enterprise view; if the system status is not critical, these events will not sound the alarm.

You can adjust the alarm settings with the following steps:

  1. In the "User Preferences" window, click the Alarm settings tab.

  2. Select the check box to enable or disable the repeating alarm.

    Note: If you disable the alarm, you will not hear an audible alarm when you receive problem events.

  3. If you have enabled the alarm, you can adjust the time interval (in seconds) that you want between each alarm. The default is 300 seconds (5 minutes).

  4. If you have enabled the alarm, you can adjust the length of time (in beeps) that you want the alarm to continue. The default is 3 beeps.

  5. Click OK.

  6. Restart the ServeRAID Manager for these settings to take effect.
