Connector for NetApp Filers - SNMP Agent

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you want to get more meaningful identifiers for the physical disks of your monitored NetApp Filers.

What does it fix?

The connector now uses the location ID (in the format 0c/0/11) in the console rather than the unique physical disk identifier (63431). The physical disk's device ID remains the unique identifier (63431).

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