We have a need to monitor the hardware on our servers, this is currently done with Dell OpenManage but I want SolarWinds to do it, because, well why use 2 things when you have 1 awesome thing right?
We currently monitor all our Windows Servers with the SolarWinds agent, SNMP is installed on the server but switched off.
In a nutshell what do I need to do to enable me to get the hardware information from these servers into SolarWinds.
These servers specifically are all Server 2008 R2.
I am concerned about using SNMP on these servers as it is being deprecated within Server 2012 and beyond.
