    How to add drive space alert on IP monitor?

    nandan

      I am the administrator on a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Standard (32-bit) - GSNAPRINT installed with IPmonitor tool version 9. I want to add an drive space alert for another server (Windows Server 2008 R2 - Standard - GSCTTLBACKUP) but was not successful.

      But there were other file shares which were added for monitoring on IPmonitor to the same server (GSCTTLBACKUP).

       

      I have attached the screenshot for reference. After I log on the GSNAPRINT server web console and I click on "Return to Device View" where I am not finding the second option.

       

      I am following this link https://support.ipmonitor.com/helps/649580d2e53d4207813667c9a7db0f12.aspx for configuring, but I am not able to find the second step as mentioned below.

       

      2.   Click the Monitors menu option, then select Add a Monitor.

       

      SNMP services are enabled on GSCTTLBACKUP server. Ping alert is working for the same server.

       

      Kindly help me!

          Starting with version 9 of ipMonitor, a monitor has to be added to a device.  You will want to open a device, and then you can add your monitor.  Please see this screenshot:

              I did not get an option of adding a monitor for an existing device GSCTTLBACKUP.

              Hence, I tried adding it as a new device.

              I clicked on Add > Add New Device

               

              IP address or hostname

              It said "Communicating with device"

              Found Existing Device Scan

              I then clicked on "View existing Results" option

               

              In Add New Device

              Modify Selection > Select Monitors to Add > SmartMonitor Settings > Drive Space, Remote Procedure Call (RPC), Microsoft Search, File Server Storage Reports Manager,

               

              Ping - Selected

               

              Clicked on "Done" button.

               

              there is an "Advanced" options I found
