Thanks Patrik,

In this situation ...

- No HMC
- Located in a data centre
- Rarely used

I have created a SQL over a system table that emails the relevant people
if an error is detected.

Appreciate your reply

Hello Don,

We recently had a system with a failed disk drive go undetected.

From my experience, the machine makes "noise" when a disk is even about to
- amber LED (also visualized in the HMC)
- serviceable events in the HMC
- messages in QSYSOPR queue
- messages in the SST service log

I have at least a weekly look at the QSYSOPR queue for being alerted

There is also the option to create another admin-type message queue where
only serious messages will be put into. Can't recall the name, though.

:wq! PoC
