    Monitor availability flapping?

    esozo

      Hi,

      We have IPMonitor checking a pretty large number of servers, most of them VMs, and recently we have started getting a bunch of alerts like this:

      HSAPP140 (D$)
      status: The network path was not found; oserror: 0x35
      alert: 1 from a maximum of 2
      critical failures: 3

      The availability reports on monitors that are generating alerts like this do show flapping.  This lasts for about 10mins, and then we get an all clear message.

      I know this is not a lot of information, but was wondering if someone could at least make some suggestions on what kind of things would cause the behavior and how we can troubleshoot this?

      Thanks.

          been having the same issue for years with no resolution.  just FYI.

          i have found that if you mix up the connection types it helps.  i find the majority of these errors are when using RPC method.  try switching to WMI and SNMP when possible also to help alleviate it.
