  1. Download and install the StorCLI Standalone utility. For the installation instructions, refer to the Readme.txt file included with the download package.
  2. Either boot to UEFI, or open a command line as Administrator (Windows*) or root (Linux*).
  3. Run the following command:
    • EFI: storcli /call show AliLog logfile=raidlog.txt
    • Windows: storcli64 /call show AliLog logfile=raidlog.txt
    • Linux: /opt/MegaRAID/storcli/storcli64 /call show AliLog logfile=raidlog.txt
    • VMware*: /opt/lsi/storcli/storcli show AliLog logfile=raidlog.txt
    Note
    • The filename of the raid log generated by the above command is raidlog.txt.
    • Newer versions of the storcli utility also generate a file called storcli.log. This file is not the raid log file.
For IT-/IR-based Intel® RAID/Storage Controllers:
  • Intel® Integrated RAID Module RMS3JC080
  • Intel® RAID Controller RS3UC080
  • Intel® RAID Controller RS3FC044
