Hardware Sentry: Some Connectors Shows a Zero Byte Size

KB1065 - May 23, 2011

Description

The Hardware Sentry KM package contains a set of zero bytes connectors.

  • MS_HW_WBEMGenericNT.hdf
  • MS_HW_WBEMGenericDiskNT.hdf
  • MS_HW_Director52LSINT.hdf
  • MS_HW_Director52LSILinux.hdf
  • MS_HW_Director52AdaptecNT.hdf
  • MS_HW_Director52AdaptecLinux.hdf

Is it because the package you have downloaded is corrupted? No. These connectors are purposefully added to package to overwrite previous versions of these connectors. The connectors that have zero bytes have been retired or replaced by connectors:
