Installing Intel Raid Web Console 2 on Ubuntu

Intel has a linux compiled version for RedHat based systems in the download center, but it can be installed on Debian based systems too.

First download the linux version for your architecture using the link above and unzip the zip file to a specific folder.

$ mkdir raid_web_console
$ unzip -d -d raid_web_console

Now, we are going to install alien tool to convert rpm packages to deb packages.

$ sudo apt-get install alien

cd into raid_web_console directory and convert rpm files to deb.

$ alien --scripts Lib_Utils2-1.00-02.noarch.rpm
$ alien --scripts RAID_Web_Console_2-13.04.03-01.noarch.rpm
$ alien --scripts sas_ir_snmp-13.04-0301.i386.rpm
$ alien --scripts sas_snmp-13.04-0301.i386.rpm

And finally install new deb files

$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

And that’s all, now, you can launch the console using this command:

$ /usr/local/RAID\ Web\ Console\ 2/ &

One thought to “Installing Intel Raid Web Console 2 on Ubuntu”

  1. I’ve had to recently try this on my Ubuntu install. I know, it’s been quite a while since you published this but I wanted to ask if you had any tips on my issue. I’m able to get it installed but when I launch the web console I don’t see the local server and just get the message “server could not be found because server may be down or server not installed in the host system”. Think I missed something?

    Thanks for any help you can provide on such an old post!
