Patch content

Connector file for monitoring Sun Servers via their ILOM systems.

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you are getting Invalid OID error messages in the System Output Window (SOW) when monitoring Sun Servers using the ILOM connector.

What does it fix?

This patch fixes an issue occurring when monitoring Sun Servers via their ILOM systems. The Invalid OID error messages were displayed in the SOW as the connector did not handle situations where sensors had either a numerical or a discrete value. The issue did not occur when the sensor had both a numerical and a discrete value.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following file to the $PATROL_HOME/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory on the managed server:
    • MS_HW_SunILOMSNMP.hdf
  2. Reinitialize the KM ([right-click] on the main Hardware Sentry icon > [KM Commands] > [Reinitialize KM...])
  3. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
