Monitoring Windows Node fails
« on: January 31, 2019, 03:22:14 PM »
Hello Forum,
I run NeDi 1.7p3 on Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS installed from scratch.

I try to monitor a Windows node with NeDi but pinging the node using "moni.pl" fails while a normal ping from OS works as expected.
Disabling the Windows firewall on the target node, did not help.

Any hint would be very much appreciated.

Code: [Select]
sudo -u www-data /var/nedi/moni.pl -vt nuc.hogwarts.local
PERL:Net::DNS::Resolver loaded
PERL:Net::NTP loaded
WEB :LWP-UserAgent loaded
RMON:11 entries (dev) read from nedi.monitoring
RMON:8 entries (node) read from nedi.monitoring
RUSR:1 entries (groups & 8 = 8 AND (phone != '' OR email != '')) read from nedi.users
PING: tcp echo fail!
Code: [Select]
ping nuc.hogwarts.local

NeDi can do ICMP ping, but also TCP ping, which may not work in this case. Check in Monitoring-Setup and change for all Windows hosts. Just be aware, it won't scale well with many (hundreds) hosts as non-SNMP tests are sequential. Testing uptime and the likes is non-blocking...
Please consider Other-Invoices on your NeDi installation for an annual contribution, tx!
