Hello,

Im using whatsup gold v16 , i am trying to make a active monitor via powershell that will run a command called sipsak from the command line, and if it returns "SIP ok" then the monitor is up, and if it reports back "SIP failure" then the monitor is down. here is the command running in powershell. i just dont know how to script it in whatsup gold. can someone help?

PS C:\> & "C:\sipsak-0.9.5.exe"  -s sip:1234567890@173.251.68.100 -N -D 1
SIP ok
PS C:\> & "C:\sipsak-0.9.5.exe"  -s sip:1234567890@173.251.68.2 -N -D 1
nothing received, select returned error
SIP failure
PS C:\>

i cant seem to find online how to do this, and i dont know powershell at all.

Thanks in advance,
Dave

I don't have any clue about Active Scripting in WUG, but from the examples I've seen you need to use $Context to get and set values from/to WUG. So your script would look like this:
$result = C:\sipsak-0.9.5.exe -s sip:1234567890@173.251.68.100 -N -D 1
if ($result -eq "SIP ok") {
  $Context.SetResult(0,"SIP ok")
} else {
  $Context.SetResult(1, "SIP failure: $($result -join ""`n"")"
}

Open in new window

Store that into a .ps1 file, and provide that script with full path to the action for monitoring  in WUG.
