LSI got bought out by Avago, and now you can't easily find a copy of the sas2ircu utility that this script relies on. I found a link to version that's hosted by Supermicro after reviewing an example RPM spec file that I found online. This utility can also monitor Dell PERC H200i adapters which is nice. It requires being run as root, so you'll need to ensure you add a sudoers exception or selinux hash to allow passwordless running of the script by whatever user is running your nrpe process.

You may need to modify the following lines in the script to point to your sas2ircu path and path. The lines to change are as follows and include changes I made for my own os CentOS7.

use lib qw(/usr/local/lib/nagios/plugins /usr/lib/nagios/plugins /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins);

my $sas2ircu = '/usr/sbin/sas2ircu';
when I start the script I get as output This program must be run as root. You may use wrappers like sudo to do this.

how can I do to solve this puzzle?
