Connector for IPMI

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you need to clearly identify the sensors that generate alerts on systems monitored through IPMI (typically Cisco UCS, DELL PowerEdge, IBM xSeries and Hitachi Compute Blade).

What does it fix?

On systems monitored through the IPMI connector, alerts now clearly display the name of the sensor that caused it. This makes easier for administrators to understand the origin of the hardware problem.

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_IpmiTool.hdf
  2. Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.
  3. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
