|Title:||Monitoring Windows NT/2000 servers via SNMP|
|Submitted By:||Greg Nyce |
Windows support of SNMP is "interesting". For example:
- The MIBs exposed for NT4 are not very good (W2K is better)
- When the SNMP service is stopped, OIDs disappear completely
NT4 - to expose lots of MIB values, get (and install) the SNMP4NT Full Edition from http://www.wtcs.org/snmp4tpc. This will give you access to SQL, IIS, Exchange, and other important MIB values.
NT4/W2K - since service OIDs disappear (not just change status to 'stopped') whent he SNMP service is stopped, you must alert on "UNKNOWN" status when using the check_snmp plugin.
