Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if the ports link speed is not available for Cisco Nexus Ethernet Switches.

What does it fix?

Because Hardware Sentry KM expected the ports link speed to be expressed in Mbits/sec or Gbits/sec, any value returned in Kbits/sec was considered as invalid and caused the LinkSpeed parameter to appear offline. Hardware Sentry KM now supports link speeds in Kbits/s.

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