Connector for IBM DS6000/DS8000 Disk Arrays
Should you install this patch?
Install this patch if you need to monitor IBM DS6000 or DS8000 Series storage systems. This connector replaces the generic SMI-S Compliant Disk Arrays connector for IBM DS6000 and DS8000 storage systems.
What does it fix?
This new connector has been specifically designed and optimized for IBM DS6000/DS8000 Disk Arrays. It adds new parameters, provides more details, better identifies the different components in the system and significantly reduces resources needed to monitor an IBM DS6000/DS8000.
How to install the patch?

- Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.
