Connector for IPMI monitoring

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are getting SEL Fullness (Temperature) alerts when monitoring an IBM server using IPMI.

What does it fix?

The IPMI connector now excludes the SEL Fullness sensor. This sensor is used to monitor the System Event Log of the IMM (Integrated Management Module) and does not indicate a true hardware fault.

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.
