How to Disable the Oracle Server Hardware Management Agent (Hardware Management Agent) Daemon hwmgmtd on BDA V4.2 (Doc ID 2081716.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 29, 2016

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance X4-2 Hardware - Version All Versions and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

On BDA V4.2 it is not possible to install the latest ILOM versions in case of an ILOM bug or issue. This is not supported because BDA hardware checks (and therefore cluster checks) do not support upgraded versions.

On the BDA disabling the hwmgmtd daemon is supported as no BDA monitoring functions rely on it.  Therefore, disabling the Hardware Management Agent daemon, hwmgmtd, may provide a workaround on BDA V4.2 for various ILOM related issues.

The steps for disabling the hwmgmtd service are documented here.
