If you have an Adaptec RAID Controller, you can have the adaptec display the individual hard drive SMART status when the computer boots. Here’s how to turn it on.

When the server boots, press Ctl-C to go to the Array Configuration Utility.

1. Select the SerialSelect Utility
2. Controller Configuration
3. Set the Physical Drive Display during POST to enable.

Next time you reboot your server, right after the Adaptec screen on your POST, you will see the smart Status of the individual hard drive.
