Seems this plugin is quite old.. saw someone mentioned and there's other newer plugins around too.
Latest updated version which includes V7000 gen3 and iSCSI support can be found here:

Follow this link to testify your nagios configuration. Mine is working aboslutely fine & able to monitor entire IBM Storage with mostly all kind of monitoring parameters.
I set up the supervision of 3 IBM V7000 (gen1 and gen2) for the Mulhouse hospital.
Everything works perfectly except for the exclusion of multiple hosts.

For example :

bash-4.1$ ./ -cluster=x.1.26.x -check=lshost -user=supervision
CRITICAL: SRVS3 (offline)

bash-4.1$ ./ -cluster=x.1.26.x -check=lshost -user=supervision -exclude=SRVS3
OK: all host online

bash-4.1$ ./ -cluster=x.2.26.x -check=lshost -user=supervision
CRITICAL: SRAPPLIDIS-H4 (offline) SRIMAGEVAULT (offline) SRAPPLIDIS-H3 (offline) SRAPPLIDIS-H5 (offline) SRVS3 (offline) SRAPPLIDIS-H1 (offline) SRSCCM-CAS (offline) SRSCCM-H1 (offline) SRDC5 (offline)

bash-4.1$ ./ -cluster=x.2.26.x -check=lshost exclude=SRAPPLIDIS-H4,SRIMAGEVAULT,SRAPPLIDIS-H3,SRAPPLIDIS-H5,SRVS3,SRAPPLIDIS-H1,SRSCCM-CAS,SRSCCM-H1,SRDC5 -user=supervision
CRITICAL: SRAPPLIDIS-H4 (offline) SRIMAGEVAULT (offline) SRAPPLIDIS-H3 (offline) SRAPPLIDIS-H5 (offline) SRVS3 (offline) SRAPPLIDIS-H1 (offline) SRSCCM-CAS (offline) SRSCCM-H1 (offline) SRDC5 (offline)

The separator is normally a comma.
Despite everything I do not get the expected result.

This plugin works great for checking the health of an IBM v7000. The suggestions by daniel_cioruta are definitely needed to increase the accuracy of the lsdrive check. Once that change is made, the plugin reports back the correct status if there is a failed drive.

lsdrive check will never notify a degraded or offline disk.

You should replace the commented lines with the next line following the commented line:

my %lsdrive_states = (
#'' => 'OK',
'online' => 'OK',
'offline' => 'CRITICAL',
'degraded' => 'CRITICAL', );

} elsif ($check eq "lsdrive") {
# * online: blank
# * degraded: populated if associated with an error
# * offline: must be populated
$svc_command = "lsdrive";
$item = "mdisk member";
$item_name = "id";
#$item_state = "error_sequence_number";
$item_state = "status";
