Timed Script Two State Monitor RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have set up a timed state two script monitor which just checks something in AD and then feeds back good or bad.

    I set this up as a disabled monitor targeting 'Agent' assuming this would just cover everything, then I created an override enabling the monitor for a group containing the server whose state I wanted to be affected by the result of the script.

    I set the parent monitor for the new monitor to 'Configuration', I thought that this would make it show up under this node when I browsed the health explorer of the server in question, but it doesn't.

    Have I completely misunderstood how this works?

  • You have the basic strategy down.  You're problem is most likely due to the target you used.  Agent is not a class that we typically use for a target.  It may work, but I would expect results to be unpredictable.  In any event, your monitor show up somewhere deep in the Health Explorer for a computer as opposed to the top level.

    You probably want to change the target to Windows Computer.  That's a very common target to use for this strategy, and your monitor will be visible at the top level of the Health Explorer for the computer.
