Connector for SMI-S Compliant RAID Controller - Linux

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are getting a Physical Disk size of zero.

What does it fix?

Some servers (typically HP ProLiant) do not report sizes for physical disks. When this situation occurs, the connector now queries the associated storage extents to find the actual disk size.

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_Director52ServeRAIDLinux.hdf
  2. Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.
  3. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
