Installing the Storage Intelligence Library

Each version of Storage Analyzer KM ships with its own library of Storage Intelligence Adapters. 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 Storage Intelligence Library on top of the base version of Storage Analyzer KM.

The Storage Intelligence Library can be installed on top of Storage Analyzer KM version 1.0.00 and higher.

Before installing the Storage Intelligence Library, it is recommended to verify which version is currently installed to ensure that a separate installation is required.

To install the Storage Intelligence Library, follow one of the procedures below:

Option 1: Unzipping the Package on the PATROL Agent

On Windows

  1. Download storage-intelligence-library-2-archive.zip from the Sentry Software Website
  2. Unzip the installation package directly to %PATROL_HOME%\
  3. Reinitialize Storage Analyzer KM

On Linux/UNIX

  1. Download storage-intelligence-library-2-archive.tar from the Sentry Software Website
  2. Run the commands below to untar the installation package directly to $PATROL_HOME/:
    $ cd $PATROL_HOME
    $ tar xf /tmp/storage-intelligence-library-2-archive.tar
    
  3. Reinitialize Storage Analyzer KM

Option 2: Using the BMC Installation Utility (Thorium)

  1. Download storage-intelligence-library-2-thorium.zip or storage-intelligence-library-2-thorium.tar from the Sentry Software Website
  2. Download the latest version of the BMC Installation Utility from the Sentry Software Website
