After recently moving our Debian servers over to ESXi 5.5, I’ve been seeing the “mpt-status” package reporting issues in the syslog. After some searching around, according to Debian.org “The mpt-status software is a query tool to access the running configuration and status of LSI SCSI HBAs. mpt-status allows you to monitor the health and status of your RAID setup.”
That’s interesting because none of our Debian servers have RAID partitions.
So naturally, I just removed the package. I haven’t had any errors with the servers, nor do I expect any.
Here’s what I did to remove the package:
sudo apt-get purge mpt-status
var _gaq = _gaq || ; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-37302584-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);
