NPM Node Details Contact field

Would like to know how I can populate the Node Details, Node Status, Contact field with data. I believe it only pulls this info from a SNMP query for network devices not servers. Was wondering if this is possible within SolarWinds.

While you could populate it using queries right on the database, I'm pretty sure it will get over-written on the next rediscovery (every 30 min by default).

Ultimately the "right" answer to this is to get SNMP on all your devices correctly configured. Then Solarwinds will have the right information.

Does SolarWinds pull this info from a Windows server? If so, where does it get it from? Initially I thought I was not inputting that info on the server, but I couldn't find a field for "Contact"

Go to teh services control panel (services.msc at the Run or DOS prompt)

SNMP Service

Agent Tab

You have placeholders for Contact and Location.

You also have checkboxes for which MIB branches to expose to queries (hint: check ALL OF THEM!!)

Ran across this post today and I did the above and will see if it gives a good report back
