  • Discovered network devices have a 'name' property equal they IP address by design.

    >But it shows actual name of switches , routers and Hpux systems.

    It looks like you're using custom\third-party management pack for this devices and there is some discovery rules inthis management packs that rewrite the 'name' property for corresponding device objects.

    You can create your ovn discovery for Windows servers discovered as SNMP Network Device. You can find example here: http://operatingquadrant.com/2009/09/10/scom-advanced-snmp-monitoring-part-i-discovering-cisco-devices-and-hosted-classes/

    (This example is for Cisco, but you can yose it with your OIDs for Windows).

  • Hi

    As Alex asked above - what management pack are you using to monitor this? Or have you created your own?

    Here are a summary of some of the best articles I’ve found on the net:

    Configuring using the GUI:
    The System Center Central team have a great series – Part I, Part II, Part III, and Part IV

    David Allen has a good walkthrough here about creating SNMP Probe based monitors.

    Issues with using the GUI to create monitors with numeric expressions – see Raphael Burri’s blog

    Authoring Console:
    Kris Bash at Operating Quadrant has some great articles on SNMP monitoring.

    Cheers
