Connector for HPUX WBEM

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if Hardware Sentry discovers and monitors dormant CPUs on your HP-UX systems.

What does it fix?

Dormant HP-UX CPUs are now excluded from the monitoring process.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following file to the %PATROL_HOME%\lib\MS_HW_hdf or the $PATROL_HOME/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory on the server where the PATROL Agent runs:
    • MS_HW_HPUXWBEM.hdf
  2. Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.

Note: Simply restarting the PATROL Agent will not prevent dormant HP-UX CPUs to go "missing" and Hardware Sentry to generate events. Re-initializing is therefore mandatory. Nothing needs to be installed on console systems.
