Connector for EMC Storage Systems

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you wish to integrate and monitor EMC Storage systems within your BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management environment.

What does it fix?

This patch cleans up EMC Storage systems identifiers to make them more readable in BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management. They are now provided in the following format: Array Type + Array ID + ComponentID (ex: CLARiiON+CKM00083900053+0_0_0).

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