came here to check the file and seen traxxus's comment, I can agree that it's harmless since we have the same storage manager running
it's part of megaraid LSI software. sometimes it causes problem with uninstallation and reinstallation on servers. I encountered such problem. It's needed for LSI megaraid to run properly.
