Debian Wheezy mpt-status

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 service mpt-statusd stop
sudo apt-get purge mpt-status

Problem solved!
