Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are getting false alerts for fans in "Smart Energy Saving Mode" or for fans with unknown status.

What does it fix?

The "Smart Energy Saving Mode" may reduce the fan speed which resulted in false alerts to be triggered. To solve this issue, the speed percentage threshold is now deactivated if a valid fan status is detected.
Fan controllers with no status are no longer discovered.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following file to %RSM_HOME%\RSMxx\SEN_HW\hdf_2xxx\ on each RSM:
    • MS_HW_IBMBlade.hdf
  2. No further actions are required. The new component monitoring will be added at the next discovery.
