Hardware Polling List for non-servers

Hi all,

A few of my non-server systems were not getting polled for Hardware Status because they had not automatically been added to the Polling List for that task. Shouldn't this happen upon device discovery?

Thanks,

Re: Hardware Polling List for non-servers

Are you saying that new Servers are not appearing in the Server Status Polling List as used by the task?

The Hardwrae Polling is split into Servers and non-servers, if the devices had not been correctly identified they would not be in this list, but should therefore appear in the non-server list.

Sorry - let me be more specific. The device (which is an HP tape library) was correctly identified as a "Storage Device" when it was discovered, but it does not appear in the "Non Server Status Polling List."

Thanks,

Re: Hardware Polling List for non-servers

Hi,

So this thread has been lying fallow for a few days, and I thought I'd see if anyone has more information. Is this a bug in SIM? Is there any way to edit the system lists in the "System Functions" category in order to correct for errors such as this?

Thanks,

Re: Hardware Polling List for non-servers

You can create a custom polling task for your tape library by going to Options-->Polling-->Hardware Status Polling and have it go against a custom list that has the devices (even a list naming the tape library itself) anc scheduling it accordingly.

Additionally, go to Logs-->All Scheduled
Tasks and select the non-server polling task and choose the [Edit] button. You can change the targets list (the custom list that this goes against).
