Install and Use NetFinity Manager
You should install NetFinity Manager 5.0 or greater in order to monitor the RAID array remotely. NetFinity Manager can be used to schedule synchronization to occur at any time of the day, so synchronization of the RAID array can be scheduled for non-peak hours and will not require user input to get things started. With NetFinity services installed at the server, and the NetFinity manager installed on a workstation, the RAID array can be monitored, and even synchronized, from a remote location. The system can also be configured to send alert messages regarding the RAID subsystem over the network to the workstation. You can even setup NetFinity Manager to page someone, e.g., the network administrator or a service technician, if a certain alert condition is reached. NetFinity Manager can also perform many other functions such as monitoring processor utilization, critical file monitoring and detecting installed software across the network. NetFinity is also used to capture PFA alerts from hard files and then send system alerts to the appropriate parties. In order to use Netfinity 5.0 to schedule data scrubbing, please download NF50RAID.EXE from http://www.us.pc.ibm.com/files.html , This file contains updated Netfinity program files which are required for scheduling data scrubbing on controllers with the write policy set to write-back cache. When installed with the NetFinity Manager code the following operating systems are affected: OS/2, WINNT, and WIN9S.
