LibstorageMgmt MegaRAID plugin


LibstorageMgmt megaraid plugin allows user to manage LSI MegaRAID via vendor tool storcli[1] or Dell PERC via perccli[2]. The 'megaraid_lsmplugin' executable file is for libStorageMgmt daemon to execute when client user specifies megaraid plugin in the URI.

Extra SELinux actions are required to allowing plugin access the hardware.

When both storcli and percli is installed, the plugin will use storcli by default even that will result in no system found on Dell PERC server. In this case, please remove storcli.

Please be noted, current volume ID is just for temperate use, we will change to use volume VPD83 as volume ID once vendor provide so.


To use this plugin, users should set their URI to this format:

perccli rpm:
