Starting the ServeRAID Manager agent

The ServeRAID Manager agent is a monitoring agent for ServeRAID controllers that uses less memory than the ServeRAID Manager graphical user interface (that is, the console). You can manage and configure a server running the agent through a ServeRAID Manager console running on another system.

Note: If the system administrator chose during installation to start the agent as a background service (daemon), the agent is already running. Verify that the agent is not running before performing this procedure.

Use the following procedure to start the ServeRAID Manager agent on your system.
