Connector for Sun/Oracle ILOM (SNMP)

Should you install this patch?

  • Install this patch if you are monitoring your Sun or Oracle x86/x64 server through its ILOM card in SNMP.
  • Adds support for rack mounted servers.

What does it fix?

  • Connector has been rewritten to minimize the number of OIDs polled (to prevent ILOM failure).
  • A more robust discovery and collection mechanism has been implemented to prevent false missing device alerts and "no collect value" error messages.
  • Power Supply, Network Card and Other Device classes were added for Rack mounted servers.

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