Connector for Dell PowerEdge 1855/1955 Blade Chassis

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are not seeing any temperature sensors.

What does it fix?

When monitoring a Dell PowerEdge 1855/1955 Blade Chassis, the connector did not recognize "Celcius" (with a capital C) that appears next to temperature sensors in recent chassis firmware. This updated connector will now recognize "Celcius" and discover temperature sensors.

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