Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch to monitor HP ProLiant servers running VMware ESX or Linux.

What does it fix?

  • All network cards are now properly discovered
  • Parameters are now correctly collected for the regular network interfaces (non-iLO)
  • The LinkStatus of the network cards is now properly collected for all network interfaces
  • Each card is better identified with its interface name (eth0, vmnic0, etc.) and model

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