Connector for Fibre Alliance SNMP Agent (Switches)

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you need to monitor a Brocade SAN Switch that is embedded in a blade chassis, for example a DELL m1000e Blade Chassis or an HP BladeSystem chassis.

What does it fix?

These embedded switches report themselves as "Storage Access" devices instead of as a "Switch", and were thus excluded from monitoring by the connector.

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