How do i monitor Windows Servers using SNMP?

I cant find a "monitor" to check my basic windows server resources, i could use some help with this.

I am running Opsview_Core_virtual_appliance_3.20131016.0.14175

Thanks.

Re: How do i monitor Windows Servers using SNMP?

Hi,

Please install the agent on the Windows server and apply the host template 'OS - Windows Base' to your windows server host(s). This is the easiest method. If you wish to use agentless to monitor Windows, please consider upgrading to a paid-for version of Opsview which supports WMI.

Best,

Sam

Thanks for you answer, after some research before posting this topic i made the same conclusion.

Is there really no way to make SNMP monitoring on windows servers possible?

Nevermind, i found several SNMP plugins for Nagios and managed to get the custom scripts working in CLI now i need to implement them into my opsview system, when i figured it out i let everyone know here.

Guys, i managed to make it work.

 

Cause of the excellent Nagios community i managed to get ahold of a few written SNMP plugins, i had to make a few changes to my Opsview virtual appliance and the script to make it work but now i have it setup like i want.

I managed to download several Nagios plugins being written in perl as well as bash and try'd out a few which would work the best for what i need it for.

You can find them here: http://exchange.nagios.org/directory/Plugins/Network-Protocols/SNMP/

Then after finding the right ones i did the following.

Importing the plugins to my opsview server and testing them, after implementing the plugin into the opsview server as described here.

After that all is fine :)

If you need any assistance let me know, also if anyone wants to know which plugins i ended up using.
