Connector for Emulex HBAs (hbacmd)

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if Emulex HBAs are not properly discovered on your Sun Solaris servers.

What does it fix?

The output of the hbacmd command is now correctly interpreted on Sun Solaris, even when some information is missing. As a result, the solution now properly discovers the Emulex HBAs on Sun Solaris systems.

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