No biggie, only cosmetic, but during the upgrade to 11.5 RC3, The installer realized my license key was not updated. (Note the version in the title bar, I'm currently running v11.0.1)
I also had a few alerts that were not imported.
In worldmap edit mode, clicking here: brings me to this:
That being said, Kudos for improvements to the Worldmap section
There was an issue in RC1&2 with externally linked logos being broken on upgrade. Should not have occurred on RC3. Readding / linking the logo should fix it. If not, if you can send me the support ticket #, we can chase it down.
I'll open a case later on today if times permit... it's only on the login page anyway.
I also realized that alert rules that were disabled prior to upgrade were reenabled (Traffic on Multicast groups) .
I've created a few tickets :
#754601 - Logo on login page does not appear
#754602 - Worldmap node status
#754607 - Disabled alert still firing...
#754610 - Wrong status description
I haven't seen an announcement for RC3, but it's available on the downloads page.
I'm very excited about the features. World Map using SNMP location is making everything a lot easier to set up some cool maps.
Looks like there are still a number of issues with alerts either not triggering or (more often for me) not recovering correctly, but hopefully those will get sorted out soon.
Another issue I'm having: When sending traps from NPM, defined variables used in the template are showed as deprecated in the trap sent (not in NPM directly ) and the link given is an Oops page.
.184.108.40.206.4.1.11307.10.7[OCTET STRING]="PropertyName" variable is deprecated in New Alerting; please see http://www.SolarWinds.com/documentation/helpLoader.aspx?lang=en&topic=OrionCoreAG-DefunctAlertMacros....220.127.116.11.4.1.11307.10.8[OCTET STRING]="PropertyValue" variable is deprecated in New Alerting; please see http://www.SolarWinds.com/documentation/helpLoader.aspx?lang=en&topic=OrionCoreAG-DefunctAlertMacros...
Another ticket was opened:
#757538 - Need documentation for variables that can be used for alerts in NPM11.5
The agent was clueless, and did not seem to understand the issue... after about an hour, I just required the documentation... It took me a while to explain to him what was a trap template and what this is used for... *sigh*
In which document was the information? We, too, need to update the SNMP trap template to forward alarms to another system.
