HPE MR Storage Administrator

HPE MR Storage Administrator is a web-based application that enables you to monitor, configure, maintain, and troubleshoot the HPE Smart Array MR controller. MR Storage Administrator enables you to view, create, and manage storage configurations.


The HPE MR Storage Administrator manages only the HPE Smart Array MR controllers. It does not manage HPE Smart Array SR controllers.

  • Monitoring and configuring: MR Storage Administrator enables you to monitor the controllers and configure the drives on the controller. It displays the status of the controller cards, logical drives, and drives on the controller. The device status icons notify you if there are drive failures and other events that require your immediate attention. Email notifications about the status of the server are sent based on your alert settings. The system errors and events are recorded and displayed in an event log file. You can also import or clear foreign configurations.


    Limited alerting and monitoring is available through iLO when HPE Agentless Management Service is installed. The HPE Smart Array P824i-p MR Gen10 controller supports limited alerts through iLO using the AMS agent.

  • Maintaining: Using MR Storage Administrator, you can perform system maintenance tasks, such as updating the controller firmware.

  • Troubleshooting: MR Storage Administrator displays information related to drive failures, device failures, and other issues. It also provides recommendations and displays contextual links, helping you to locate the drives/devices that have issues and troubleshoot them. You can also download a report of the devices and their configurations, properties, and settings and send it to Hewlett Packard Enterprise Support for further troubleshooting.

Obtain MR Storage Administrator installation files through the Service Pack for ProLiant, or SPP, which you can download from the Hewlett Packard Enterprise website (https://www.hpe.com/servers/spp/download). Be sure to use the latest SPP version for the server.
