Connector for HP Insight Management Agent - Server - WMI

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are using WMI to monitor your HP ProLiant network cards and if the status is always unknown.

What does it fix?

The Network card (iLO management cards) Status is now properly monitored and the error message "The Specified datatype is invalid" will no longer be appearing in the RSM log file.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following file to %RSM_HOME%\RSMxx\SEN_HW\hdf_2xxx\ on each RSM:
    • MS_HW_HPInsightwmi.hdf
  2. No further actions are required. The new component monitoring will be added at the next discovery.
