Connectors for Sun Solaris - Sun Disks and Sun Solaris - Non-Sun Disks

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if the product fails to discover disks that are larger than 1TB on Sun/Oracle Solaris servers.

What does it fix?

Disks branded as Sun and larger than 1TB were excluded from the discovery because the expected product tag was "SUNxxxG" (e.g. the connector would accept "SUN450G" but exclude "SUN2T").

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

Note: If a server only contained Sun disks larger than 1TB, this patch will cause the "Sun Solaris - Non-Sun Disks" connector to deactivate and the "Sun Solaris - Sun Disks" connector to activate. Customers who manually selected these connectors will need to manually make this change.
