Hardware Sentry Connector for HP-UX - STM

Should you install this patch?

Use this add-on patch if you need to monitor HP-UX systems (HP 9000, HP Integrity, HP SuperDome) and encounter problems with the current HP-UX - Disks connector that relies on the LVM layer and requires root privileges.

What does it fix?

This add-on patch provides enhanced disk monitoring on HP-UX systems as well as memory modules information. This connector rely on the Support Tools Manager component of HP-UX. It supercedes the "HP-UX - Disks" connector which only supported disks managed by the LVM layer and required root privileges. This new connector no longer requires root privileges and support disks not handled by LVM.

How to install the patch?

Install the MS_HW_HPUXStm.hdf file in the $PATROL_HOME/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory of the managed server. Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.

It is also strongly recommended that you install the Patch 1037 in order to avoid duplicate disk icons in the PATROL Console.
