Hi all,

I created a rule in Exchange 2010 HT that prepends subject line for all emails coming in from outside the organization. The rule is working fine. But we have our internal solarwinds monitoring server that sends an email whenever a server goes down or gets rebooted and emails from solarwinds are getting their subject lines prepended which probably means that for the Exchange server, those emails qualify as coming in from outside the organization.

Any idea why is that happening ? That server is using an email address to deliver email alerts.

Thanks and Merry Christmas.

hi guys,

I've just installed a trial of WhatsUP Gold for server monitoring etc. However, I also want to be able to do hardware diagnosis, which this application doesn't really seem to be able to do very well. I don't have the money to buy Solarwinds either.

Don't HP have their own tools that one can install? I literally have a server in Hong Kong that has had a fan failure apparently, but I have no way of knowing that unless I install the right tools. Any ideas?

Thanks for helping

I need to produce daily summary reports of all errors happening on Domain Controllers - security and replication.
Occurrence number, the times of the first and last encounters.
Does Orion have such capability?

Our Solarwinds admin guy said he can't set up rules unless a sample event is sent to solarwinds.

We have about 70 events from an app : so far the apps team only could get someone to login/logoff
to simulate once such event but for the other 69 events, need to do reboot etc which they can't
unless there's downtime.

Attached is the full list of snmp events our apps team gave to me.

I'm wondering :

a) what exactly our solarwinds admin is expecting or hinders him from creating rules?  He's
    elusive & extremely busy (ie no time to show me)

b) are there free tools like snmpwalk etc which I could trigger sample events?

I'm sure Cisco devices & Windows events which are currently sent to the solarwinds will
go through the same process to be monitored but really doubt the network chaps will
send the 100+ Cisco event types to Solarwinds for them to be monitored.

I want to know how to integrate Chocolatey into SolarWinds N-Central?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Experts:

Please advise. I have a Dell PowerEdge T420 where the hardware is fine but SNMP for Solarwinds MSP Remote Monitoring is reporting a battery issue  for:
DELL PERC H310 SCSI - "Dell - RAID - Storage Management" and "Dell - Battery State - State of battery" is reporting "Unsupported SNMP variable. Everything matches the other working servers. However I want to compare the OIDs from the Dell Server vs. the Reporting Software. For the monitoring software it is reporting (battery) OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10893.1.20.130.15.1.4.1
Controller: 1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10893.1.20.110.13.0
Please advise
FYI: Could not find matching hardware when I ran the SNMP Walk on the problem server unless I am looking for the wrong thing? Searched for "battery" and "RAID"

Forgive the length, but I want to provide a detailed description of the problems I'm running into what I've checked so far:

I purchased Solarwinds DameWare to help with supporting PCs in-house. I started running into problems where it would not connect to some computers. Other computers worked fine. One of the error messages on DW said something along the lines of "The computer you're trying to connect to is actually a different computer. Do you want to continue?" So I started troubleshooting and running into some strange DNS weirdness.

Starting with the two computers involved with the error above, I pinged both by name from my PC and they both returned the same IP address. When I went to those PCs, one of them had that IP and the other had a different IP. Digging further, I started running into a few more computers that when pinged by name returned incorrect/duplicate IPs.

Some research indicated I might not have DNS scavenging turned on. Odd thing is, everything worked fine before installing DameWare. I was using UltraVNC for report desktop support, and now that won't connect to these problem PCs either. So I started checking my DNS settings on the Domain Controller. (I only have one DC and it is the only thing managing DNS that I am aware of.)

Logging into the Domain Controller > Server Manager > Tools > DNS
When I look in the tree under my server > Forward Lookup Zones > my domain, I'm seeing a list that includes records that are months or years out of…
