To check for NAC service status we have an url which we can use to check its availability.
Do we have similar url which we can use to check NES availability?
No, there is no URL for execution servers because NES's do not have a web interface, whereas the NAC does, and all NES management is done through the NAC's GUI.
The best way to check if a NES is up is to login to Automation Studio, then navigate to Administration --> Agent Management. There you'll see the NES each agent belongs to (the top node of the tree). This view will show if it's online or offline.
Another method is to verify connectivity over telnet, so you can telnet to port 61616 on the NES to verify that it is accepting connections.
Can you try using this URL:
This will return 200 when available
We tried hitting the url directly from internet browser and it returns a blank page. We didnt get the 200.
Do we have to try a different approach ?
That's one too l wasn't aware of either, good to know! I might toss have to toss this in a KB soon.
The page is blank but check the exit code, it should be 200.
