Patch content

Connectors for IBM Director Agent 6 - Windows and for IBM Director Agent 6 - Linux.

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are getting incorrect temperature and/or voltage thresholds on IBM xSeries servers running the IBM Director Agent.

What does it fix?

The 6.3.2 version of the IBM Director agent reports voltage and temperature alert thresholds in a way that is inconsistent with the previous versions. The new connector takes into account this variation and support older and newer versions of the IBM Director Agent.

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_Director61Linux.hdf
    • MS_HW_Director61NT.hdf
  2. Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.
Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
