Fellow EE's, I am looking for some software solution suggestions for auditing asset warranties. Below is a list of desired functions that I would like to have and if anyone has something that can do some of these please feel free to share, thanks in advance!

1. Start/Ship Date, End Date: This is critical. I need to know when a tracked asset is nearing its warranty end to approach extension or replacement.

2. Vendor Neutral: If possible I need a system that can check different vendors if possible. Dell is typically an easy solution which I typically deal with but some clients have non dell systems and servers which causes extra effort to track and adjust.

3. Event Triggers: If possible it would be able to also send notifications to a desired email account or notification outlining a pre-configured time period prior to expiration. This early warning system would be important to give the client time to budget and respond accordingly instead of last minute.

4. System Type Flexibility: Most devices like workstations, laptops, and servers have the ability to check the vendor. I also need the ability to manually add details and fields for systems that may not have a system that can be tracked manually. This would be important for UPS/Battery Backups, Switches, AP's, etc. If it cannot be que'd by an automation system with agents I need to add to the list.

5. Technician Assignments: Would love the opportunity to set the systems into clusters like for specific …

Logon Login failed for user . Reason: Attempting to use an NT account name with SQL Server Authentication.

I have a Windows domain account like gooled\solarexpert that is set as sysadmin on mssql database, connect to Solarwind application.  The application connection is not successful. I check the database log, it is "....Reason: Attempting to use an NT account name with SQL Server Authentication."

I use this account gooled\solarexpert  on other database with same setting, it's no issue to connect. Most are nnncet5ed successfully, only few of them is with this error message.

Any advice?

I have tried almost all suggestions posted from web about this error, it still doesn't work.

My server is mssql 2012

A few years back I had SolarWinds Real-Time NetFlow Analyzer working with my Cisco 3750x switch. Recently we had some suspicious traffic so I installed a new version of the software on a Win 10 machine. I can connect through the software to my switch, I can see all of the interfaces but none of them show NetFlow enabled. When I click on the interface I want to monitor then click "Start Flow Capture" I get a 'NetFlow is not detected on the selected interface'.

How do I get this port configured correctly to capture NetFlow data?

Additional Facts:
IOS version 15.0(2)SE6

Config on switch:
int gig <port to be monitored>
ip flow ingress
ip flow egress

ip flow-export source <port to be monitored>
ip flow-export version 5
ip flow-export destination <IP of my Win 10 machine> 2055

Open in new window


Per this thread- https://thwack.solarwinds.com/thread/20498 
I tried to run the ip nbar protocol-discovery and the ip route-cache flow on the port to be monitored. Neither of those commands were accepted on that port.

Any help is appreciated.

EDIT:
I've had users on other forums attempt to help me by pointing me to towards flexible netflow configurations that use the command ip flow monitor <name of monitor> input applied to the interface they want to monitor. My switch does not allow flexible netflow to be applied to non-service module ports. What I'm trying to monitor are the standard gigabit interfaces.

The netflow commands I can apply to those standard interfaces are those listed above: ip flow ingress and ip flow egress. How do I get netflow analysis that way?

Hello,

I am running an issue with our Solarwinds Orion server not producing any reports and values showing 0 for CPU and Memory usage for even weekly report. This issue started ever since we migrated from 2012 server to 2016 server. The database was simply moved to the new server. We are on VMware 5.5 environment.

Upon checking more, some nodes were showing not managed so I went ahead and enabled the hosts as managed nodes. Now the host is enabled for VMware VCS polling auth but the windows servers within the hosts need VCS polling authentication.  For these windows machines I tried checking the box where it says VCS auth and input VMware root credentials for the host but it kept failing with message invalid auth. I am sure that I am entering right credentials.

- The reports are showing 0%, we checked a sample node and I found out that there is no data in the database (VMStatistics table)
- I went to the web console and checked the vmware polling, found out that the guest is not managed in Orion

- To get the data collection working, I need to enable VMware polling for the nodes

Does the windows nodes within VMware host also require VCS polling authentications ?

Sorry I am new to solar winds and can use some help.

Thanks in advance.

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"
