Hi,

The Variable ${Status-Previous} does not seem to exist neither in the Basic Alerts nor in the Advanced ones.

Basic Alerts - Node Status Variables

Advanced Alerts - Node Variables

Where did you find it?

Thanks,

Yann

Appending  "-Previous" (w/o the quotes) to variables is suppose to return the previous state before the trigger.

Check out help on this here: http://www.solarwinds.com/NetPerfMon/SolarWinds/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm#href=OrionAdministratorGuide.1.316.htm

 

EDIT: Oops.. found an old thread that states that -previous only works with "Basics Alerts"...

If I was to guess, it was a leftover from an older Orion release.
