Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if:

  • an "Invalid Temperature value" error message appears in the System Output Window
  • an "Invalid LinkSpeed value" error message appears in the System Output Window
  • you need to better identify the blade servers by their "user label" and model name

What does it fix?

  • Temperature sensors with a "not-applicable" value are excluded from the monitoring.
  • The network cards with an "indeterminate" link speed will not collect the LinkSpeed parameter.
  • The blade instances properly show both the "user label" if any has been customized by the administrator and the actual model name (instead of a product code).

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following file to the %PATROL_HOME%\lib\MS_HW_hdf or $PATROL_HOME/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory on the managed server:
    • MS_HW_CiscoUCSBlade.hdf
  2. Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.
  3. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
