OK I have this working now so that you can PING a piece of hardware with the option toalso check it services (if it a Windows Server).
I am currently adding groups so that hardware can be assigned to them i.e.
Then the main staus page will build the display group by group across the page. The layout is the tricky part and I am working on this now so as soon as I have tested this Iwill release another update.
Sounds great that, will give it a test tomorrow hopefully
Just gave this a little test, getting an HTTP 500 Internal Server Error when trying to access Admin page. Can see the status page fine.
On a Win 2003 SP1.
This will show you how to trun off error pages so you can see the true error:
Turn off error pages
It is most likely that you need to enable paret paths in IIS, this will show you how:
Enable Parent Paths
Cheers that worked,
now getting an
Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80004005'
Operation must use an updateable query.
/mlsm/incs/data_functions.asp, line 118
when trying to update settings.
You need to ensure that the data folder and it's contents have write permissions set for the Intertnet guest account (IUSR_MachineName)
Cool got that working, its just now seeing everything as offline.
Have you downloaded that version form the website v1.2 if so then this is the version that only checks Windows Services.
The version that can check non windows servers i.e. wireless, printers etc. will be available tonight.
Yeah got the one from the website v1.1.
But should it not see servers as up?
just added two of our servers, and the status page is seeing them both as offline, including the one that the webpage is hosted on.
is there anything glaringly obvious i may have missed?
just seen the bit on the site about 'If a server is added but no services assigned to it the server is shown as offline'
checked and i do have services added to the server, so hopefully i'm not being too stupid here
not only me then! was about to panic, was expecting phone calls any second! :p
OZ: Hope this is being developed into the roadmap of MLH?
Mine still shows as offline when services are added.

Take a look at the screen shot attached.
@Plexer: Yes you are correct :-)
