Patch content

Connector for IPMI monitoring.

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are using IPMI to monitor your Oracle SPARC servers and do not see power supplies.

If you are using PrtPicl for monitoring SPARC environment and are unable to get a status for power supplies, you should install this patch and manually select the IPMI connector instead of the PrtPicl connector.

What does it fix?

The IPMI connector now recognizes Oracle specific SPARC power supply sensors.

How to install the patch?

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