    Engine Polling Failure after polling/sql split

      Hi guys

      This is my database server:

      Web ServerVITALSTATISTIX
      Operating SystemWindows 2003 Standard Edition
      OS Version5.2.3790
      Service Pack2.0
        
      Database Server192.168.10.67
      CatalogSolarwindsData
      Database EngineMicrosoft SQL Server
      SQL VersionMicrosoft SQL Server 2005 - 9.00.4035.00 (X64)
      Nov 24 2008 16:17:31
      Copyright (c) 1988-2005 Microsoft Corporation

      Web Server VITALSTATISTIX

      Operating System Windows 2003 Standard Edition

      OS Version 5.2.3790

      Service Pack 2.0

       

      Database Server 10.1.1.2 (fake)

      Catalog SolarwindsData

      Database Engine Microsoft SQL Server

      SQL Version Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - 9.00.4035.00 (X64)

      and here is my polling engine details:

      Polling Engine on VITALSTATISTIX 

      Engine Status   Polling Engine Down

      Type of Polling Engine Primary 

      Polling Engine Version Engine Version 9.1.0 - SolarWinds Orion Network Performance Monitor 9.1 SP5 

      IP Address 10.1.1.1 (fake) 

      Last Restart 23-May-10 05:04 PM 

      Last Database Sync 33 seconds ago 

      Last Fail-Over Never 

      Elements 8979 Elements 

      So, the problem here is that when you check under the admin settings on the webgui interface the polling engine status goes down/up/down within a matter of seconds, this causes false positives on our side and totally messes up the SLA agreements we have with our hotspots.

      Everything was working fine (amount of elements are rougly the same as before the split) when the NPM and the SQL was running on the same box, but after the split this started happening.

      Do you have any ideas where to start looking?
