Connector for HP Bladesystem On-Board Administrator using SNMP

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are getting false temperature alerts due to temperature sensor thresholds being set to "0" or "-1".
If important sensors are missing after having applied this patch, consider using the HP Bladesystem (SSH) connector instead.

What does it fix?

Excludes temperature sensors that do not have a valid temperature value (and thus also an invalid threshold) or a valid status.

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 server where the PATROL Agent runs:
    • MS_HW_HPBladeSystem.hdf
  2. Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.
  3. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
