Connector for Dell OpenManage Storage Manager

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch to improve the labels of the disks in Dell PowerEdge server with the Dell OpenManage Server Administrator agent.

What does it fix?

The connector will now use Dell's Location (Nexus) codes to identify disks. The previously used SNMP identifiers are no longer reliable indicators of the true location of the physical disk and can change.

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