Connectors for HP Proliant Servers using HP's NIC Teaming functionality.

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you need more detailed physical network port information.

What does it fix?

In HP ProLiant systems, the monitoring of the physical cards in a NIC teaming configuration is now done through the operating system instrumentation. The HP Insight Management Agent - Network Connector now monitors the status of the logical network cards only.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following file to the $PATROL_HOME/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory on the server where the Patrol Agent runs:
    • MS_HW_CpqNIC.hdf
  2. Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.
  3. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
