    Cannot communicate with a server

      I have recently upgraded to version 9.5 and SP1. 

      I have a server which is reporting that it is up, because it is pingable.  When I went to check the resources of the server, it came back with an error. "Communication Problem.  Server is currently down, unreachable, or "String" is not a valid SNMP community string."

      I had a problem with a server, and fortunately my DBA caught the problem.  I monitor volumes and alert based upon volume conditions.  My alert for the volume never alerted me because it could not communicate with the server.  This is a big problem.

      Is there anyway for NPM to report to me when it looses communication with a server?
