EDIT: I suggest you read the comment below by ndavis. Just get rid of the problem entirely 😉
I’m getting mails sent to root on a fresh install of Debian 6 with official VMware Tools, whining about RAID status changes, which is odd, since I have no visible RAID configs this Debian install should be worrying about.
This is a RAID status update from mpt-statusd. The mpt-status program reports that one of the RAIDs changed state: Report from /etc/init.d/mpt-statusd on <SERVER>
I don’t know what causes it, and the forums I’ve stumbled upon have offered fixes, but no actual explanation.
In order to disable the messages (and the daemon itself), do the following as root:
/etc/init.d/mpt-statusd stop echo RUNDAEMON=no > /etc/default/mpt-statusd
