Hardware Sentry connector for HP BladeSystem - Telnet/SSH
Should you install this patch?
Apply this patch if you are using Hardware Sentry to monitor an HP BladeSystem enclosure.
What does it fix?
This patch adds the monitoring of HP BladeSystem enclosures by connecting to the Onboard Administrator card through Telnet or SSH. This connector can replace its SNMP-based counterpart if Telnet or SSH is preferred over SNMP. This version of the connector also better reports the status of each blade and a few temperature sensors that couldn't be accessed through SNMP.
How to install the patch?
Install the MS_HW_HPBladeTelnet.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. If the monitoring of an HP BladeSystem enclosure was already setup, you will need to change the monitoring configuration of the system to select this new connector and provide the required credentials. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
