1. Introduction
HSD Exclusive is a multi-lingual software utility that monitors the status of the CPU
and system temperatures, fan speed, network interface status and power supply of
your system. For systems with RAID capability, HSD Exclusive also monitors the
status of your hard disks and RAID set. In addition, HSD Exclusive provides a fully
configurable real time E-mail alert system in case of any abnormal situation.
2. Operating system compatibility
HSD Exclusive is compatible with Windows XP, POSReady 2009, Windows Vista
and Windows 7 32 bit operating systems. 64 bit versions of Windows operating
systems are not supported.
3. HSD Exclusive versions
There are two versions of HSD Exclusive:
HSD_Exclusive_POSEO5200_Install_Vxxx is for POSEO 5200.
HSD_Exclusive_OdysseII_Install_Vxxx curretly supports the following models:

The functionality of the two versions of HSD Exclusive is identical.
4. Software Installation
4.1 Before you start

HSD Exclusive must be installed in an administrator account.

For installation under Vista or Windows 7, you must run the installation program
by right-clicking on the program icon, then choosing ‘Run as Administrator’

To set up HSD for use with a user account with restricted rights, see chapter
4.3.

Select the model name of your system. This will set the minimum and maximum
values for voltages, CPU and system temperature, and fan speeds.
Note: The POSEO 5200 version of HSD Exclusive does not require selecting a
model.
Click the Finish button to finish the installation.
7
Click Yes to restart the system.

4.3 Setting up HSD Exclusive for a user account with restricted
rights
HSD Exclusive can only run in an account with administrator rights, because it needs
access to the system hardware. In order to run HSD Exclusive in a user account with
restricted rights, it is necessary to start HSD Exclusive with administrator rights (Run
as Administrator).
An additional utility, HSDScript, is provided to automate this task.
HSDScript creates the instructions and shortcuts necessary to start HSD from a user
account with restricted rights.
Any shortcut created during the HSD Exclusive installation process (see page 5) will
be replaced by new shortcut, which allows you to launch HSD Exclusive from a user
restricted account.
It is recommended that you always run HSDScript after installing HSD Exclusive,
because:
- it ensures that HSD can always run in an administrator account and in any user
account with restricted right which you may create later.
- It is the only way to start HSD Exclusive automatically under Windows Vista and
Windows 7.
Before running HSDScript
Windows XP and POSReady 2009:
HSDScript can be executed from the administrator account where HSD Exclusive
was installed.
Windows Vista and Windows 7:
HSDScript must be run in the Windows built-in administrator account
You can not run it in any other administrator account that you have created.
The built-in administrator account name is ‘Administrator’.
By default it is not visible and has no password.
Before running HSDScript, you must assign a password to the ‘Administrator’
acount.
9
HSDScript Installation
Locate the program HSDScript in the installation folder of HSD Exclusive and
double-click it to launch the program.
(The default location of HSDScript is C:\Program Files\HSD Exclusive)
Enter the account user name and password in their respective field, and check that
the path to the HSD Exclusive program is correct.
Click on the Create Script & Shortcuts button.
After a few seconds, you should see a message reporting successful installation.
Any shortcuts created during HSD Exclusive installation (Desktop, Start menu
program folder, Quick Launch toolbar, Startup folder) are now replaced with a new
shortcut running HSD ‘as administrator’

A5. Setting up and using HSD Exclusive
If HSD Exclusive is not set up to start automatically each time you power on the
system, you can start it manually by double-clicking on the icon.
It can take up to 20 seconds for HSD Exclusive to start and check the status the first
time.
By default, an icon will be displayed in the taskbar. It means that the program is now
active:

Item 1: Language and logging of data
Language.
Three interface languages are available: French, English and German. Select the
desired language. The change is effective immediately.
Logging.
Logging of data is disabled by default. When enabled, the hardware status is logged
into a comma separated value text file (.csv) which is located in the HSD Exclusive
installation folder.
The file name is HSDYYYYMMDD-XXX.csv, where
- YYYY is the current year
- MM is the current month
- DD is the current day
- XXX is a number from 000 to 999
XXX is incremented by 1 each time you stop and start the logging.
13
You can set the how often (in minutes) the log file is updated, and the number of
days to record the log (1-45 days). If you enter 0, logging will continue until you stop
it manually.
Item 2: Monitor Setting
Here you can select which items are monitored by HSD Exclusive:
- Temperature: CPU and System temperature
- Fan Speed: CPU and System fan speed (for systems with one or more fans)
- Voltage: CPU VCore voltage, 3.3V, 5V, 12V. Some systems do not support
monitoring all the voltages.
- Detect T(ms): how often HSD Exclusive will check the hardware status, in ms.
Item 3, Alarm Message Setting
Here you can set which kind of alarm will be generated in case one of the monitored
items has a value that is outside of the set limits.
- Popup message alarm: a message box describing the type of abnormal situation
will be displayed:
- Popup Windows Alarm: the main HSD Exclusive monitoring window is displayed,
showing the abnormal situation.
- E-mail alarm: an email with the details of the hardware status will be sent to the
email address defined and set up under item 5
14
Item 4, Alarm Setting
This item lets you do two things:
- Check which event should trigger an alarm.
- Set the limit values for each monitored item. The default limit values for your
system are set during the installation of HSD Exclusive when you select your model
(see page 7). There should normally be no reason to change these values.
In general, you should not increase the minimum values, or decrease the maximum
values, as this could mean that HSD Exclusive may generate unnecessary alarms.
Item 5, Email Setting
This item lets you set up an email account to which alarms should be sent.
This setting is password protected to prevent unauthorized changes.
To enter the Email Settings, enter the password into the Password field and click on
the Open Setting button.
The default password is ‘Admin’ (without the quotes).
The password is case sensitive.
Changing the password
Check the Change Password box.
Type your current password in the Password field
Type your new password in the New Password field
Re-type your new password in the Confirm New Password field.
Click the Set Password button.
After changing the password, you will receive a confirmation message.
To cancel the password change, uncheck the Change Password box before
clicking in the Set Password button.
15
Setting up email
Enter the password in the Password field and press the Open Setting button.
The email settings are displayed:
Enter the email server information, user name, password where you email is set up.
Depending on the email server requirements, you may have to specify whether to
use SSL authentication, encryption and port number. Consult your email provider for
the correct information.
Enter the Mail subject that you wish to use.
By clicking on the blue text Click here add PC Name to subject, the system name
as defined in Windows will be added at the beginning of the subject line.
This enables you to quickly generate an email subject that identifies the system, and
that is different for each system.
Once all the parameters are set up, you can test that email alerts work correctly by
clicking on the Test button. This will send a test email to the specified email address.
Item 6, Form Transparent
This slider lets you change the transparency level of the main monitor window.

6. RAID Monitoring
Systems that support RAID (ODYSSÉ II and POSÉO 5200) will show a RAID tab in
the main monitor window.
The RAID system is entirely managed by hardware and there are no settings that
can be changed.
RAID Status indication
Status = Normal
Status = unplugged: One HDD is unplugged (or dead)
17
Status = Rebuilding: the HDD has been replaced and is being rebuilt.
Status: Verifying Rebuild (POSEO5200 only)
On the POSEO5200, the RAID hardware will verify the integrity of the rebuilt HDD
immediately after finishing rebuilding.
During any RAID status, except when the RAID status is Normal, the HSD icon in
the taskbar will blink. It will stop blinking once the status returns to Normal.
