maxView Storage Manager is a web interface for managing your Microsemi Adaptec SmartRAID controller (and its resources) on a Linux or Windows computer.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to download and install this "maxView Storage Manager" web interface on Linux.
To get started, go to your Microsemi Adaptec SmartRAID controller page and click on the "Storage Manager Downloads" link.
In the list of "Storage Manager" downloads that appears, click on the "maxView Storage Manager v3... for Linux x64" link.
As noted in the description of this "maxView Storage Manager v3 ... for Linux x64" download, this driver is compatible with various Linux distributions.
In this tutorial, we will be using Debian 10.9.0 x64 which is a very well known Linux distribution.
Click the "Download Now" button and accept the Microsemi license agreement.
The proposed file will be : msm_linux_x64_v3_xx_xxxxx.tgz.
Once the file is downloaded, open a terminal and get administrator rights using the command :
Then, go to the folder where you downloaded the "msm_linux_x64_v3_xx_xxxxx.tgz" file.
In our case, the "Downloads" folder of our Linux user.
Create a "msm_linux" folder.
Unzip the downloaded file into the "msm_linux" folder you just created.
tar xzvf msm_linux_x64_v3_07_23971.tgz -C msm_linux
Go to the folder : msm_linux/manager.
And start the installation of the "StorMan-3.07-23971_amd64.deb" package which is there.
dpkg -i StorMan-3.07-23971_amd64.deb
On Debian 10.9.0 x64 this can happen :
dpkg: warning: 'ldconfig' not found in PATH or not executable. dpkg: warning: 'start-stop-daemon' not found in PATH or not executable. dpkg: error: 2 expected programs not found in PATH or not executable. Note: root's PATH should usually contain /usr/local/sbin, /usr/sbin and /sbin.
If so, run the 3 commands below .
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/sbin export PATH=$PATH:/usr/sbin export PATH=$PATH:/sbin
Then restart the installation of the "StorMan-3.07-23971_amd64.deb" package.
dpkg -i StorMan-3.07-23971_amd64.deb
Selecting previously unselected package storman. (Reading database ... 140048 files and directories currently installed.)
