Patch content

Updated connectors to improve the monitoring of Cisco SAN Switches

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you are monitoring newer (most) Cisco SAN Switches.

What does it fix?

Newer Cisco SAN switches do not provide sufficient information via SNMP. This new connector uses TELNET / SSH instead.

How to install the patch?

Copy the following files to the %PATROL_HOME%/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory on server monitoring the switch:MS_HW_CiscoTelnet.hdf
Re-initialize Hardward Sentry. Run the Connection, Credentials and Connectors wizard. Deselect the Fibre Alliance SNMP connector, select the Cisco Telnet / SSH connector. Select Telnet / SSH. Provide login credentials to Switch.
