When creating an automation policy, I need a way to include the customer ID and the Site and the machine id in N-central (not necessarily the net bios name) in an email that is being sent out. If i could pull this information into a variable that would be great. An email that only contains the computer name is not very useful with you have thousands of computers.
After introducing partial support for sites into n-central quite some time ago, support for customers/sites was removed or never actually added in filter previews and reports.
I am told that for a report or filter to include the customer/site instead of just a device name, a feature request needs to be created because Solarwinds consider this to be by design.
in special cases there will be environments where Workstations will not have internet access at all.
For such environments it would be great if the devices would communicate with something like a site concentrator which will collect the check results and upload these to the dashboard, bascially working as some kind of an upload proxy.
whether you are using the full screen 'wizard' to create a new site, or the administration\sites\add , please add in a section where we can chose what accesses to grant the probe(s).
Custom fields at the Customer and Site levels that are accessible via the rules would provide a lot of flexibility when it comes to service templates or notifications. For example: If I want to roll out Security Manager to a customer, but I need to do it on a site by site basis, it would be very easy to have a custom field that indicates that a site should have Security Manager. Then I can create a filter and eventually ...more »
I would like to be able to apply a "notification window" to a device, site and/or company directly or via a rule. The most specific setting wins. This will provide the ability to set up simplified notifications so that administrators don't need to take into account all the possible permutations of service levels for notifications. They simply say, "I want to be notified about X when it is important to the customer/site/device." ...more »
We like the idea of sites but we are unhappy with the way it is implemented where it requires a new installation of the agent. It would be better if the site can just be a group and devices can be moved between the groups.
Why can't the concentrators be more useful such as caching installs for Web Protection, Antivirus or patching agents. All these modules of Max consume to much bandwidth if you trying to install patch management or any modules to a new site having every computer call out to the internet and download the software does not make sense. If the concentrators could do the same thing as it does with patching it would be more ...more »
We need a way to download BD MAV to do a standalone installs for sites with low bandwidth like you can download the agent software. MAV install consumes to much bandwidth to be successful doing push installs on many computers with sites with low internet bandwidth.
One of our larger customers have a bespoke agreement which requires an enhanced responce 24/7/365. They have 30-40 servers at each site and if there is a problem with Internet connectivity or inter-site transit then we can have ALL servers offline on the dashboard for that customer. This would then generate an SMS for each and every server down, this causes stress in the receiving engineer as well as a high SMS bill ...more »
Currently MAV and WebProtection are handeled with Policys, whilst patchamangement is configured directly through Customer / Site / Device.
Can we recieve the option to have Policys for Patchmanagement as well?
So that we can work around the Customer /Site /Device hirarcy?
If a client is using a proxy server to route out of the private LAN, and the proxy server is urnned off, then you cannot access the agent to change the settings and then need to edit the settings.ini file to revert. If this was multiple serers on a single site, or even multiple servers on multiple sites (either an enterprise proxy or a federation of education sites e.g. Bristol City Council) then this becomes edious ...more »
