    Alert not triggering. Can't work out why.

      Hi all,

       

      I'm trying to set up an alert on Solarwinds. Very basic - alert me when an interface on a specific node goes down. Reset the alert when its back up.

       

      Firstly I cant believe there isnt a template for this already. So I set the alert up using the rather disorganised GUI - which wasnt exactly a walk in the park, since it's not intuitive at all!

       

      Here's the alert trigger condition:

       

      trigger condition

       

      And reset condition:

      reset

      and the trigger action:

      action

       

      Reset action is pretty much the same.

       

      This alert is enabled, but doesnt seem to trigger. Is something set up wrong?

       

      Thanks for any help.
