NIC monitoring not alerting RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have deployed MSCOM SP1 to monitor Microsoft 2003 Enterprise servers. These servers utilize HP NIC teaming. I enabled the 'Network Adapter Connection Health' monitor in the WIndows Server 2003 Network Adapter MP through an override to all my servers. When open the server health monitor, I can drill down into the NIC's and they all show state: GOOD. When I disable one of them, or unplug it. It never toggles to critical. If I highlight the NIC in the health explorer and do a 'recalculate' a couple times, it will eventually turn critical and alert. But, it never flags the disconnect on its own.
    Any ideas?
