Patch content

Connectors for monitoring servers running ESX.

Should you install this patch?

This patch should be installed on all systems monitoring ESX servers to improve system monitoring.

What does it fix?

Non-Fan sensors of type "Percentage" were being monitored as if they were fans (i.e. System Management Module Error Percentage) and thus creating false alerts.Only sensors of type "Percentage of Speed" will now be monitored.

How to install the patch?

Install Patch P1129 first if not already installed.
Copy the following files to the $PATROL_HOME/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory on the managed server:

  • MS_HW_VMwareESXi.hdf
  • MS_HW_VMwareESX4i.hdf
Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.
Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
