Connectors for Brocade SAN Switches

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you are monitoring Brocade SAN Switches

What does it fix?

Replaces Fibre Alliance Connector. Collects information from Brocade Specific MIBs instead of the industry standard Fibre Alliance MIB.

This allows better port identification, adds remote host information. Metrics collected are the same as Fibre Alliance connector.

How to install the patch?

If there are already Brocade Switches being monitored with the Fibre Alliance Connector:

  • Stop the RSM
  • Delete all the old Instances Files: Remote Service Monitor\RSM2x\SEN_HW\data\sen_hw_oldInstances_*.dat
    This will stop these external disks being reported as "Missing"
  • Copy the file MS_HW_BrocadeSwitch.hdf to %RSM_HOME%\RSMxx\SEN_HW\hdf_27xx\ on each RSM
  • Start the RSM.
Otherwise, just copy the file listed above onto the RSM to apply the patch.
