If you have a virtual machine with Debian OS on a VMware environment, you may get the following message in the syslog:
Feb 11 10:26:40 host mpt-statusd: detected non-optimal RAID status
As soon as Debian is installed on a VMware ESXi host it assumes that disks are in RAID and the RAID verification service is being installed.
It is sufficient to stop the mpt-status service and (optional) remove the package:
update-rc.d -f mpt-statusd remove
Removing the package can be done with apt-get:
apt-get remove mpt-status
