OMi monitoring automation not working

Hi

We have integrated SiS with OMi and trying to get basic monitoring automation working. I have followed all the integration steps and think everything is set up correcty.

When i deploy a sitescope monitoring template from OMi to a SiS node, OMi reports the template is successfully deployed but there is no trace of it in SiS.

Can anyone assist with some troubleshooting tips?

You can start troubleshooting with checking if the policy was indeed deployed to the Agent (ovpolicy -l).

Then check %OvDataDir%/log/system.0.en_US file for any errors related to the policy deployment.

Re: OMi monitoring automation not working

Thanks, I did some more investigation. It looks like SiS is failing to deploy the monitor using the FQDN of the host. All i've done is modified a copy of the Windows Host Template and using the %%HOST%% parameter to pass from OMi to SiS. When SiS tries to deploy it, it fails. When i take a closer look, SiS  doesn't like the FQDN in the attached setting.

This is the first time setting up monitoring automation so i'm not sure if i've done anything wrong, but i'm assuming this should work. The doco says that "Server to get measurements from:" needs to be a configured host in SiS but that would defeat the purpose of monitoring automation.

Re: OMi monitoring automation not working

Hi,

Are you able to deploy the template in SiteScope itself? If not, that's a good place to start troubleshooting.

If you include the 'remote server' in the template then configure the monitors to use the remote server in the template. That is how I managed to get it to work.

Re: OMi monitoring automation not working

never mind, i figured it out. when i set the remote server name to %%host%% it started working, go figure. thanks for the pointer!
