    Groundworks & Windows Server SNMP

    Got strange problem got one server installed net-snmp on it set the config file all worked ok. Groundworks is seeing the snmp messages no problem.

    Two other servers installed net-snmp copied config file across started the service and groundworks does not see the error messages.

    I also tried redoing the config file on the 2nd and 3rd server no joy.

    Anyideas..

    Russ

    p.s

    This is in nagios part of groundworks?

    Checked with getif and not broadcasting the messages...

    Wonder if using net-snmp does the ms snmp need enabling..

    Is there any reason you're not using the built-in ms snmp? I use that plus NSClient++.

    Net-SNMP mentions a few solutions

    It works fine here for querying Dell hardware (openmanage) on vanilla Nagios, but I've never tested Groundworks.

    You've set permissions correctly on the properties tab of the MS snmp service? Particularly the security and traps tab?

    What happens when you run a query manually from the nagios box? i.e

    Code:
    pete@helios:/usr/local/nagios/libexec$ ./check_perc.pl -D phys -T sm -H IPADDRESSOFSERVERWITHSNMP -C communityname
    Physical Disks - OK
    That (obviously) checks physical disk status on a poweredge raid controller.
