How to check the status of the disks

Run the following command to check the health status of the disks in your RAID:

DEVICE=/dev/sda
for i in $(megacli -pdlist -a0 | grep Id | cut -d":" -f2); do
echo "============================== $i =============================="
smartctl -s on -a -d megaraid,${i} ${DEVICE} -T permissive
done
Note:

Please note that you will need to replace /dev/sdawith the correct disk that represents your Logical Volume, if you have multiple of them.
