Adds support for IBM Director Platform Agent 6.2

How to install the patch?

Copy the following files to the %PATROL_HOME%/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory on the managed server:

  • MS_HW_Director61Linux.hdf
  • MS_HW_Director61NT.hdf
For servers running Linux, the WBEM port needs to be set to 15988 (http) or 15989 (https). (The default ports of the IBM Director Agent are now 15988/15989, not the default 5988/5989).

To set the WBEM PORT, right-click the local host�s Hardware icon > KM Commands > This System�s Settings > Connection, Credentials and Connectors.
On the WBEM Credentials page, set the port to 15988 (Leave Encrypt unticked) or 15989 (tick Encrypt).
Further details about how to set the WBEM port can be found here

Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.
Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
