Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch to improve the monitoring of HP EVA Disk Arrays when monitoring HP EVA arrays with an older version of Hardware Sentry KM for PATROL (1.6.00, 1.6.01, 1.7.00). The connector requires that either:

  • The Patrol Agent is installed on the same server as the HP StorageWorks Command View EVA Software.
  • The SSSU.exe executable to be copied on to the Windows server where the KM is installed a remote monitoring setup of the server with HP StorageWorks Command View server.
SSSU.exe in both cases needs to be in the global path.

What does it fix?

  • Environmental sensors located in Disk Shelves are now monitored.
  • Sensors and Physical Disks have been grouped into "Blades" (one blade for each controller / disk shelf).

How to install the patch?

Copy the MS_HW_HPSSSU.hdf file in the $PATROL_HOME/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory of the managed server and re-initialize Hardware Sentry ([right-click] on the main Hardware icon > [KM Commands] > [Reinitialize...]).
Nothing needs to be installed on Console Systems.

Setup a new remote monitoring (or reconfigure the existing remote monitoring) of type storage of the localhost (if the Patrol Agent is installed on the HP Command View EVA server), or of a remote host where the HP Command View EVA software is installed.
