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

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you experience duplicate processor instances when monitoring IBM xSeries servers through the IBM Director Agent (locally or remotely).

This patch replaces: P1522

What does it fix?

On rare occasions, the IBM Director Agent will report each processor twice. The connector now properly identifies these erroneous instances and excludes them from the monitoring.

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_Director61NT.hdf
    • MS_HW_Director61Linux.hdf
  2. Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.
  3. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
