HBA management

What is HBA Agent in ManageEngine?

The HBA Agent in ManageEngine is vendor neutral and is built on SNIA Common HBA API specification. The agent is capable of working with SNIA compliant HBAs, like QLogic, Emulex, JNI, and HP Tachyon.

OS Support

ManageEngine`s HBA Manager is available as OS-specific packages for:

  • Windows
  • Linux
  • SUN Solaris
  • HP-UX

These HBA agents will work only on SNIA compliant HBA drivers

Application Notes

Use the below steps to check whether HBA driver is SNIA compliant:

  • Windows: Check for the registry key under: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE --> SOFTWARE --> SNIA --> HBA
  • Linux /Solaris /HP-UX: Check for the file /etc/hba.conf

If entries are not present, then first install SNIA compliant HBA driver before installing the ManageEngine HBA agent.

For Emulex, if the installed HBA drivers are with HBAAnyware v3.0 or later, the above mentioned registry key entry will not be available. In this case, download and install a copy of HBA API libraries from the following URL. On doing so, the registry is modified to reflect the location of the library.
