Connectors for IBM AIX

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you are receiving false alerts on network ports on IBM AIX servers

What does it fix?

All Driver Flag lines are now searched to determine status. Previously only the first line was analyzed, which resulted in false alerts when additional flags were added, usually "Debug".

How to install the patch?

Copy the following files to %RSM_HOME%\RSMxx\SEN_HW\hdf_27xx\ on each RSM:

  • MS_HW_IBMAIX.hdf
The database file needs to be deleted for existing elements to activate the new connector:%RSM_HOME%\RSMxx\server\rsm\tmp\deploy\sen_hw_database_[hostname].dat
