Installing the Hardware Connector Library with BPM Express for Hardware

Each version of BMC Performance Manager Express for Hardware ships with its own library of Hardware Connectors. Because this library is regularly updated to include the support for new platforms, improvements, and fixed issues, Sentry Software recommends installing the latest version of the Hardware Connector Library on top of the base version of BMC Performance Manager Express for Hardware.

The Hardware Connector Library can be installed on top of BMC Performance Manager Express for Hardware version 2.9.20 and higher.

Before installing the Hardware Connector Library, it is recommended to identify which version is currently installed to ensure that a separate installation is required. For more information, please refer to Preparing for Installation.

The Hardware Connector Library needs to be installed on each RSM that runs BMC Performance Manager Express for Hardware.

  1. Download hardware-connectors-18.zip from Sentry’s Website

  2. Unzip hardware-connectors-18.zip into the %RSM_HOME%/RSMxx/SEN_HW/hdf_2xxx/ directory on each RSM
