Connector for HP Insight Management Agent - Server - WBEM

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are getting temperature alerts for temperatures near but not over HP's recommended thresholds.

What does it fix?

  • Thresholds labeled as "Critical" are often only "Warning" temperatures in HP's Insight Manager Agent. The patch now detects this problem and sets the right thresholds.
  • Display IDs have been improved to enable easier component identification.

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