Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if WAN interfaces (VPN) are being discovered as if they were physical network cards.

What does it fix?

The "WAN" tag is sometimes exposed in hexadecimal. This case is now properly identified and the corresponding instances are filtered out.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following file to the %PATROL_HOME%\lib\MS_HW_hdf or $PATROL_HOME/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory on the server where the PATROL Agent runs:
    • MS_HW_MIB2NT.hdf
  2. Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.
  3. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
