  • Question

  • I want to set up ping monitors for websites, servers, public routers, gateways etc. What would be the easiest way to accomplish this using SCE?

     

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

     

    For your reference, there is a function named “Ping Status” that can be enabled for  Windows Server group within the Default Management Pack.

     

    Please refer to the following steps to enable the “Ping Status”:

     

    1.       Go to Authoring, expand "Management Pack Objects", click on Monitors;

    2.       On the right panel, type Windows Server and expand to Availability;

    3.       Right click on the Ping Status and select Overrides, then Overrides the Monitor;

    4.       Select “For a specific object of type: Windows Server”;

    5.       Make sure the Override Settings and  Effective Value are "True" under Override Properties and is "overrided".

     

    After enabling the above Ping Status, please go to Monitoring tab and open Health Explorer for your specific sever and you will find there is a Ping Status.

     

    Hope this helps.

  • For website (URL) monitoring, navigate to the authoring space (it has an icon that represents a pencil and piece of paper).

     

    1. Go to Authoring, expand "Management Pack Templates"

    2. Select Add Monitoring Wizard

    3. Select Web Application

    4. Provide a name and a description for the Monitoring Rule you are about to create then click Next

    5. Enter the URL of the site to check (use the Test button to confirm you have typed the address correctly and the site can be reached), then click Next.

    6. Select the checkbox for the System Center Essentials Server and set how often you would like the web site tested

    7. Click Next and then Click Create.

    I'm interested in URL monitoring as well. We are currently using Gomez and would like to revert to using systems center.
