Hard drive temperature not accurate

Recommended Posts

I've got a newly built HP54L with ESXI and Xpenology running.

 

I get warning emails from Diskstation Synology (Xpeneology) saying my disk "is -1 ºC, which is not within the operating temperature, 0 ºC ~ 70 ºC."

 

My disk is definitely not at -1ºC, I wish it was :smile:. So how do I get Xpeneolgy to give me accurate disk temperature warnings?

Your ESXi has access to drive sensors and show correct temp. DSM doesn't have direct access to motherboard or device sensors.

Can I give DSM access to the drive sensors? It would be very handy for DSM to send me emails if disk temperatures get too hot. It is also pretty important for DSM (or something else) to email me if a disk starts to fail.

 

Edit: can I view HDD temps in the vSphere GUI client?

Skip ESXi and install DSM directly on HP54L. This server is not powerful enough to be useful with multiple servers, but for NAS only - its about perfect.

Sorry, but I'll be keeping ESXi - Not going to re-build. There must be a way to get SMART info such as temperatures from the hard drives.
