Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if some hardware failures are not detected on Sun/Oracle Solaris servers.

What does it fix?

On Sun/Oracle SPARC-based Solaris systems, some failures were reported with an "UNKNOWN" status (itself translated to "OK" by default) instead of an "ALARM" status. This was notably true for power supply failures.

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