Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are running a recent version of Linux (RHEL6, SLES 11 SP2, etc.) and need to monitor the status of a multipathing setup (typically a server with one or several LUNs mounted through an HBA).

Adds support for the new output format used by the latest multipath utility.

  2. Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.
