Usage Instructions

Ensure you have set the Primary Hostname/IP field of your Opsview Host to the hostname or IP address of your exchange server.

Step 1: Add this Host Template

Add the Application - Microsoft Exchange - Database Host Template to your Opsview Monitor host. If the resource you're monitoring has no hostname or public IP, then open the Advanced settings pane and change Host Check Command to Always assumed to be UP.

For more information, refer to Opsview Knowledge Center - Adding Host Templates to Hosts.
