Our Nagios setup for generic-hosts does not include checks for software RAIDs, although package monitoring-plugins-standard is installed and provides check_linux_raid anyway. Thus we want to update the Nagios config to apply this check to all servers with a software RAID.

The only (Puppet-managed) servers without a software raid are server_10 and server_15:

mhennig@w540:~/AdblockPlus/infrastructure$ ./ -r $PUPPETMASTER -t \* -i /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_linux_raid 2>&1 | grep -B1 ^UNKNOWN
Running on
Running on

While server_10 does not have a RAID at all, server_15 seems to rely on the hardware RAID controller:

mhennig@w540:~/AdblockPlus/infrastructure$ ./ -r $PUPPETMASTER -t server10 -t server15 -i 'lspci -vv | grep -i raid || echo "(none)"'
Running on
00:0f.0 RAID bus controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VIA VT6420 SATA RAID Controller (rev 80)
Running on

Update: server_10 is a virtual host, server_15 is misconfigured - it should have had a software RAID. The latter one should get fixed before (or at least while) this ticket is tackled.
