Dell OpenManage Storage monitoring - overall status og virtual disk

As far as I can see, the "SNMP Dell PowerEdge System Health" does not include channels for Storage, only Chassis.

Is there a way of monitoring the Storage "node" in OMSA?

I am aware that there is a sensor for physical disk, but I would rather monitor the overall Storage status or virtual disk status than a sensor for every physical disk. We are small enough that we do not have a problem with manually checking OpenManage on the server with Storage warning to see what is going on and physical disk monitoring will take up many sensor licenses.

Hello Tore,
thank you for your KB-Post.

Yes, it should be possible to monitor any OID from the StorageManagement-MIB, as long as you know what you're looking for.

If you're looking for an overall enclosure state I believe that this is what you're looking for:

enclosureState
1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10893.1.20.130.3.1.4
The current condition of the enclosure (which includes any devices connected to it.) Possible states: 0: Unknown 1: Ready 2: Failed 3: Online 4: Offline 6: Degraded
ready(1), failed(2), online(3), offline(4), degraded(6)

There are many alternatives you could use to monitor the above, including:

Here's a guide if you decide to go with the SNMP Library sensor:

And here's the set-up guide for lookups, which need to be used to translate the values (16) to the corresponding text and states:
