Patch content

Java-based SSH Client and Cisco MDS connector

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you are unable to monitor your Cisco switch (in particular the MDS 9513).

What does it fix?

The SSH client has been modified so that it can process large command outputs without timing out. Due to the large number of ports on an MDS9513 switch, this switch is particularily affected by this issue. The timeouts have also been lengthened.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following file to the $PATROL_HOME/bin directory on the managed server:
    • MS_HW_SSHClient.jar
  2. Copy the following file to the $PATROL_HOME/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory on the managed server:
    • MS_HW_CiscoTelnet.hdf
  3. Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.

Note: This patch will only work if you are using SSH to monitor your Cisco Switch.
