The tool you need to look into is: sysutils/aaccli . I think arctool
is only for arcmsr-devices.
unfortunately aaccli doesn't provide the possibility to use it with
parameters, so you probably
need to use it with an expect-script.
On the adaptec 2410SA I activated the "alarm" feature in the
controller bios, which helps me,
because its a home server but this will not help you if your server is
sitting somewhere else.
Because of this limitation (and a few other things with the
controller) I'm certainly looking for
an other solution. In my case a ZFS-based software RAID will suffice,
but this might not be
desirable for you.
Take care & good luck,
