This tool is used to find problems with configured hardware RAID arrays.  Uses native RAID utility (MegaCli64 or CmdTool2) if installed to issue MegaCli commands.

Usage:  ./nwraidutil.pl [OPTIONS]


Note: If ./ is excluded and a version exists in the user path (e.g. /usr/sbin/nwraidutil.pl) then that version will be used instead.
