    Alert triggers multiple questions

      First question we have is how to generate a triger for all server but not to go off for cisco routers and switches?


      I have the one that came with orion on:


      Trigger alert when any of the following


      Node status is equal to down


      Worked great till router and switches were added.  Since this has happend 3 things are going FUBAR.  If a unused port is down (multiple ports on a new switch) we get an email.


      If I put in a alert suppression


      Suppress altert when any of the following


      IOS is equal to (any cisco IOS)


      Didnt help stilll got a ton of emails


      I added to the trigger condition


      Trigger alert when all of the following


      Node status is equal to down


      Trigger alert when any of the following


      IOS is equal to (windows IOS)


      When I added the last line I get a flood of emails every 30 seconds saying my servers are down when they are not.


       


      What am I doing wrong?


      I just neeed triggers that will that will go off if server is down and only a microsoft box


      If an interface is down and is only a microsoft box


      Then the same above but only for certian servers.
