Patch content

Connector for monitoring disks on a VMware ESX server (IPMI).

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if the "VMware ESXi - Disks (IPMI)" connector is activated but no disks are being monitored.

What does it fix?

The connector will now discover and monitor disks even if a presence sensor for that disk does not exist.

How to install the patch?

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