    Solarwinds Scheduled Job limitations

    fraser-sky

      Hi

       

      The scenario I am in.

       

      We have an alert in Solarwinds that triggers if a device has not sent a SNMP trap within 30 days but our  F5 devices and standby/passive Firewalls do not generate many Traps so the alert is triggered very frequently.

       

      I would like to schedule a Solarwinds Job to run once a month, that will  attempt a login with a specific username ( so we can identify this) and a bad password so it will cause device to send an Auth failure trap to Solarwinds and  stop false alerts for this.

       

      The Jobs in the network configuration tab are limited and will obviously always login successfully.

       

      I want to avoid changing config on our network kit

       

       

      Is there any other way this can be done in Soalrwinds ??

       

      Thanks
