Connector for Hitachi (HDS) Storage Systems

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you need to monitor Hitachi (HDS) Storage Systems. This connector replaces the SMI-S Compliant Disk Arrays connector.

What does it fix?

This connector has been specifically designed and optimized for Hitachi (HDS) Disk Arrays. It adds new parameters and significantly reduces resources needed to monitor a Hitachi Disk Array.

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_HitachiDiskArray.hdf
  2. Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect. If the KM is in manual connector selection, run the Connections, Credentials and Connectors wizard and select "Hitachi (HDS) Disk Arrays" instead of "SMI-S Compliant Disk Array".
  3. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
