We have some Windows Server Monitoring elements which displays data such as disk space, memory usage etc.. which uses the SNMP protocol.
We have successfully got this monitoring element working for elements monitoring the local host in the IP, but elements in a failover pair it is unsuccessful at displaying data setting the IPs to the machine names instead of using "localhost". Is there any set up that is required to for windows monitoring elements in failover pairs?
Thanks in advance!
It could be possible that you'll need to allow the SNMP ports in the Windows firewall. Windows has two firewall rules named 'SNMP Service (UDP in)' which should be enabled to allow remote SNMP calls. Could you verify these are enabled?
You could also use a tool like NMAP to verify the SNMP ports are open (udp 161, udp 162).
Hope this helps
