Adaptec Storage Manager

This article describes the installation of Adaptec Storage Manager on a system with a RAID 3405 card but may be applicable to many of Adaptec's RAID cards.

Should work in all Ubuntu releases. Tested from 8.04 (Hardy Heron) to 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) on Ubuntu Server 64-bit.

sudo apt-get install alien

Log on, download and convert the RPM file to a DEB package:

tar xvf asm_linux_x64_v6_50_18579.tgz
alien --script manager/StorMan-6.50.x86_64.rpm

Become root, install and start the package:

sudo -s
dpkg -i storman_6.50-18580_amd64.deb
service stor_agent start

To start Storage Manager on a machine with a local X server:


From a remote desktop to a headless server:

ssh -X <hostname>

Where <hostname> is the name of the server upon which you installed ASM.
