    SNMP and Login Validation jobs


      Does anyone know if it's possible to create a job that mimics the "Validate SNMP Credentials..." and Validate Login Information..." steps? I would love to have NCM check these every week or so, but I don't want to waste time trying to download configs again, or anything like that. If it's not possible, is it on a list as a feature enhancement to NCM?

          I have a complex solution.  I have a NPM custom SQL report that gives me the status as in below image:


          This is complex because I run a SQL job that matches the NCM node to the NPM node and populates a custom field in the NCM DB called OrionNodeID.

          Let me know if you are interested and I'll upload all the necessary components to content exchange.

            It should be noted that there is already a Login failure report in NCM that you can run via the NCM report menu.


            njoylif - Good job on this report, just need to add that this report is created via the Orion NPM report writer so anyone using it may need to make additional custom sql changes.  For example, the report points to the default configmgmt.dbo.nodes, if your db has a different name, that change would need to be made.  Additionally, if the NCM and NPM are on different database servers, it will not work.  Otherwise great job on utilizing the integration.
