Patch content

Connectors for SMI-S Compliant RAID Controller - Windows and for SMI-S Compliant RAID Controller - Linux.

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are using the SMI-S Compliant RAID Controller connector to monitor your RAID controller, typically in the following systems:

  • IBM xSeries server with the IBM Director Agent
  • HP ProLiant server with the HP Insight Management Agent and SNMP disabled
  • Fujitsu PRIMERGY server with the Fujitsu Serverview Agent and SNMP disabled
  • VMware ESX host (any vendor)

What does it fix?

  • Adds monitoring of battery backup units on RAID Controllers.
  • Improves the label of the disks so that they are better identified.
  • The VMWare ESX Disks (Storage) and VMware ESX Disks (IPMI) connectors are now automatically deactivated if the SMI-S Compliant RAID Controller connector applies to the monitored system.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following files to the $PATROL_HOME/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory on the server where the PATROL Agent runs:
    • MS_HW_Director52ServeRAIDLinux.hdf
    • MS_HW_Director52ServeRAIDNT.hdf
  2. Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.
Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
