Connectors for HP Drive Arrays.

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch to add the monitoring of external MSA disk bays OR for anyone monitoring HP systems using versions 2.7.05 or 2.7.06 of the PM

What does it fix?

Adds support for StorMan managed RAID cards (2.7.05 & 2.7.06).
Removes additional fake internal enclosures that are reported as external by numerous HP systems.

How to install the patch?

Copy the following files to %RSM_HOME%\RSMxx\SEN_HW\hdf_27xx\ on each RSM:

  • MS_HW_CpqDriveArrayNT.hdf

For PM versions 2.7.05 & 2.7.06, the RSM will need to be stopped and all old instances files deleted (%RSM_HOME%\RSM27\SEN_HW\data\*oldInstances*.dat).
The RSM can then be restarted.
This procedure is to prevent all the fake enclosures from being reported as missing.

For users looking to monitor an MSA disk array, the database file needs to be deleted for existing elements to activate the new connector: %RSM_HOME%\RSMxx\server\rsm\tmp\deploy\sen_hw_database-[hostname].dat
