Connector for Oracle/Sun ILOM (SNMP)

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you wish to monitor:

  • A recent out-of-band Oracle/Sun x86 SPARC server.
  • A Oracle/Sun Infiniband Switch (in conjunction with the MIB2 connector).

What does it fix?

Previous versions of this connector only worked on known x86 Blades Oracle/Sun systems. The connector has been completely reworked to allow hardware monitoring of any Oracle/Sun system with an ILOM.

Note: Due to limitations of earlier ILOM cards on pre-2011 servers, events could be generated in incorrect classes (Fan alerts under Enclosure for instance).

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