How to Extract the Full RAID Log for Intel® RAID Controllers


Maintenance & Performance



Note For additional troubleshooting help for Intel® RAID Controllers, see Basic Troubleshooting Guide for Intel® RAID Controller–Related Issues.

How do I extract the full RAID log?

For Intel® RAID Controllers in RAID mode:

  1. Either boot to UEFI, or open a command line as Administrator (Windows*) or root (Linux*).
  2. Download the StorCLI Standalone utility and run storcli /call show AliLog logfile=raidlog.txt.

For Intel® RAID Controllers in non-RAID mode (IT, target, JBOD, or raw), use Windows Event Viewer (Windows) or var/log/messages (Linux).

Older discontinued Intel® RAID Controllers may only be compatible with CmdTool2. For those Intel® RAID Controllers, run CmdTool2 –AdpAliLog –aAll –NoLog > saslog.txt.

storcli show all
may be easier to read, but does not have the logs included.
storcli show alilog
has logs included.

Alternatively, for the hardware Intel® RAID Controller cards, if your system is running the Intel® RAID Web Console 3 Utility, you can extract the TTY logs, too:
