Connectors for IBM Director Agent 6.1 and above

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you are using IBM Director Agent 6.3 or greater on IBM xSeries servers and alert thresholds are missing for some temperature sensors.

What does it fix?

'Zero' values reported by the IBM Director Agent are now properly discarded.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following files to the %PATROL_HOME%\lib\MS_HW_hdf or $PATROL_HOME/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory on the system 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.
