Patch content

Connector for Servers running Solaris 11.

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are using the SUN - Network connector to monitor network ports on a server running Solaris 11 and the network port's Device Instance ID is not the same as its Link Assigned Name. (e.g. the physical port device ID is e1000g0 and the ifconfig name is net0)

What does it fix?

Adds support for Solaris 11's new port naming system.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following file to %RSM_HOME%\RSMxx\SEN_HW\hdf_2xx\ on each RSM:
    • MS_HW_SunNetwork.hdf
  2. No further actions are required. The new component monitoring will be added at the next discovery.
