We have the same IBM server.

IPMI does not display the raid status.

Only this:

# ipmitool sensor
Drive 1 Status   | 0x0        | discrete   | 0x0180| na        | na     
   | na        | na        | na        | na
Drive 2 Status   | 0x0        | discrete   | 0x0180| na        | na     
   | na        | na        | na        | na
Drive 3 Status   | 0x0        | discrete   | 0x0180| na        | na     
   | na        | na        | na        | na
Drive 4 Status   | 0x0        | discrete   | 0x0180| na        | na     
   | na        | na        | na        | na
RAID Error       | 0x0        | discrete   | 0x0080| na        | na     
   | na        | na        | na        | na

Therefore, I recommend the proprietary IBM/Adaptec tools.

Best regards,

Morten
