Connector for IBM DS6000/DS8000 Disk Arrays

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you need to monitor IBM DS6000 or DS8000 Series storage systems. This connector replaces the generic SMI-S Compliant Disk Arrays connector for IBM DS6000 and DS8000 storage systems.

What does it fix?

This new connector has been specifically designed and optimized for IBM DS6000/DS8000 Disk Arrays. It adds new parameters, provides more details, better identifies the different components in the system and significantly reduces resources needed to monitor an IBM DS6000/DS8000.

How to install the patch?

Copy the following file to %RSM_HOME%\RSMxx\SEN_HW\hdf_2x\ on each RSM:

  • MS_HW_IBMDS68DiskArray.hdf
No further actions are required. The new component monitoring will be added at the next discovery.
