IBM AIX - sissasraidmgr Disk Controllers

Connector file name: MS_HW_IBMAIXSissasraidmgr.hdf

Description

Provides the monitoring of RAID controllers in IBM AIX servers through the syssasraidmgr command line utility.

Target

Typical platform: IBM POWER

Operating system: IBM AIX

Prerequisites

Relies on: sissasraidmgr managed RAID card

Technology and protocols: System Commands

This connector requires advanced privileges on the managed host for the command below:

  • /usr/bin/sissasraidmgr

This connector therefore needs to run as root or you need to configure a privilege-escalation mechanism like sudo on the managed host to allow the monitoring account to run the command listed above.

Sample of /etc/sudoers to allow the above command to be run as root by the patrol account:

patrol ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/sissasraidmgr
