On ESX Server 3.5, Inaccurate Health Status Warnings Are Issued on Some HP Systems with a PROCHOT Sensor (1009137)
On HP systems with the Intel PROCHOT sensor, a warning is issued, and yet the PROCHOT label is "Normal." Furthermore, the HealthState setting of the sensor is "10". This situation occurs because of an HP firmware issue where the digital discreet sensor asserts conflicting states.
This issue is resolved in ESX Server 3.5 Update 4 in that these conflicting states are now appropriately managed. Therefore, the sensor's label and Healthstate setting would now be displayed as "Unknown," which is proper given the information received from the firmware.
