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 BMC Performance Manager Express for Hardware 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 %RSM_HOME%\RSMxx\SEN_HW\hdf_2xxx\on each RSM:
    • MS_HW_CiscoTelnet.hdf
  2. No further actions are required. The new component monitoring will be added at the next discovery.
