  • 1.  Off-Premises(Remote) Server Ping Monitoring

    How we can monitor ping availability of, off-premises servers using CA UIM. Any leads will be appreciated. 


    Current UIM v. 8.5.1

    If you can ping the servers from your UIM hub and there is no communication blocking then net_connect can be used for ping monitoring. 


    Otherwise you may need to setup a remote hub and using tunnels you can achieve monitoring those servers.

    Right, you need a second system that has ICMP access to the first system to run net_connect on. 


    I also see several interpretations of "monitor ping availability of" and if you are really testing if a given network adapter has network connectivity you could run the test the other way since generally, if you can't be pinged, then you can't ping out also so you could run net_connect on the system you are testing and ping out to known good systems that are only reachable on the network that the interface you are testing on has access to.


    Or consider looking at the event log for the link up/down on the adapter or running a script locally to test the connectivity as Windows/Linux OS reports it.


    That is all of course dependent on whether you have a working network connection to get that data off the system being tested.
