KACE Tracking Bad Fans, Power Supplies, or Hard Drives? Hardware level failures?

Hi all,

Any clever ideas on how we may be able to get KACE (K1000 Management Appliance) to notify/track when hardware level issues come up? I'm thinking Event Viewer searching is about as far as we can get, but for things like power supply failures or even fan failures, most of those errors are in the BIOS. Any thoughts on how we can get a better grasp on when things fail using KACE? 

Any thoughts or ideas are welcome!

SMART status could be done with a custom inventory rule and WMIC.  It would be something like:

ShellCommandTextReturn(wmic diskdrive get status)

If the BIOS has the information, then it's likely you should be able to use a custom inventory rule to get it.

If your systems are Dells, I'd recommend looking into Dell OpenManage as well: http://www.dell.com/learn/us/en/04/enterprise-systems-management-products
