Solarwinds Scheduled Job limitations


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 ??

Hi mesverrum

Thanks for the reply, I could create a Job for solarwinds to log in and use logger to send trap from the F5,  but the  Firewalls do not  have this  functionality and looking for a single action for them all and also want to be able to identify the trap if questioned by our security team.

As an alternative maybe you could just set up a job to log into the f5 and have it send a sort of heartbeat trap or syslog to Orion
