Connectors for Sun Network

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you are using the CLI based Sun Solaris Network Connector to monitor your Solaris x86 server and are not getting link status, speed and duplex mode.

What does it fix?

Enables the collection of link status, speed and duplex mode from dladm if not available from kstat or ndd. Adjust command lengths to allow the use of sudo on Portal Systems.

How to install the patch?

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

  • MS_HW_SunNetwork.hdf
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
