If it's a serveraid card then some of the RAID status information is 
available via ipmi. The ipmi-sensors command (part of freeipmi) should 
be able to display drive status and overall RAID error status.

If you don't mind using the vendor's proprietary tools then either IBM's 
ServeRAID manager or Adaptec's own raid management tool should work with 
these cards.
