Agents not working with multiple IPs on host or dual honed servers

I have some web servers with approx 100 IPs (one for each web site) and the agents do not appear to work.

Is there a way I can bind the agents to a specific IP as I am also getting some issues on a couple of multi-honed firewalls where I only want the Agent bound to the internal interface

Hi,

I have a similar Problem with my W2K Cluster and SIM 4.0.

Never touch a running system!

We've seen this before, and when the agents were first developed, it was thought that 64 IP addresses was plenty, so that's all it was tested out to. There is a request to change that behavior, but I don't believe it has shown up in any releases as of yet. It's best to make sure you are working with the latest ProLiant Support Pack, 7.10A, just in case.

Selective binding is available with the Linux version of the agents; Windows proves to be a tougher problem because Windows itself doesn't allow selective binding of SNMP.
