MOM Question about Alerting for Offline/Down Systems
Posted on 2009-04-05
Hi guys, we are running MOM 2005 in an AD 2003 Environment.
What we would like to know is the following:
a) Is it true that MOM cannot detect systems that are offline or down?
The reason i ask is that it appears that MOM will only alert when systems have had unexpected shutdowns...that is...after the case the system is offline.
b) What we want is for MOM to alert us when the system is down/offline, not alert us when the system is back from being offline/down as in alerting us to an unexpected shutdown event id.
If anyone can provide any info as to how you configure MOM to alert when a system is down (eg.cannot be pinged), while that system is down, instead of alerting once the system is back up, that would be great. Thank you :>)
