Connector for UNIX/Linux Servers with Emulex HBAs

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are unable to monitor Emulex HBAs on UNIX/Linux servers.

What does it fix?

Emulex HBA monitoring failed when hbacmd was not installed in /usr/sbin/hbanyware/hbacmd. The patched connector will now run the command without the full path.

Important: This modification requires hbacmd to be added to the PATH environment variable of the user used to monitor the server.

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