    DESCRIPTION

    The attached Python script copies application monitors from one Solarwinds node to one or more Solarwinds nodes. The script creates new application monitors on the target node(s). If the application monitors on the source node have overridden any template values, those overrides will be copied to the new application monitors.

    SYNTAX

    copy-solarwinds-apps.py [-S|--server solarwinds_server] -s|--sourceNodeIP source_node_IP -t|--targetNodeName target_node_FQDN [-t|--targetNodeName target_nodeN_FQDN]* [--help]

    COMMAND LINE PARAMETERS

    -S|--server (Optional, default = localhost): The FQDN or IP address of the Solarwinds server. If omitted, defaults to "localhost"

     

    -s|--sourceNodeIP (Required): The IP address of the Solarwinds managed node you want to copy. I've specified that this must be an IP address because my users not infrequently create multiple nodes with the same caption but different IPs for load balancer nodes, cluster members, etc.

     

    -t|--targetNodeName (Required, can specify 1 or more): The FQDN of the node(s) to create. The FQDN must be resolvable by the device where the Python script is running.

     

    --help (Optional): Print help/syntax info
