Re: [NV-L] ? about automating action on Windows using SNMP Set
Maybe its because I am seriously sleep deprived right now and a bit
dense but are you looking for a way to send an SNMP SET from Netview
to the Windows system and are having trouble using the SNMP agent on
Windows to do what you want?
If all you need to do is restart IIS if that specific log entry is
found maybe you can just do this locally on the Windows machine itself
without involving Netview for the reset command?
Or if you're looking for a way to take action on the Windows system
from Netview and cant think of the transport mechanism or are having
trouble with the Windows SNMP agent, you could enable the telnet
server on Windows and use an "expect" script to connect to the Windows
system and do whatever you need? I dont know how usable the Windows
telnet prompt is but I am sure it can be used to restart a service!
If you need to do a bunch of things like this, you might want to look
into IBM Tivoli Monitoring - a hell of a lot easier to work with! :)

Running NV 7.1.4 FP4 on RH Linux AS2.1
Would like to know if anyone has info on how to accomplish the following:
Have a windows server that sporadically has an application issue. This
issue creates a unique Windows Application Event log entry.
Using EvntWin – I can get the the msg converted to a trap and off to
Netview. I can page or email or ???
What I don't know how to do is use SNMP to perform a command back to the
system that generated the error (in this case I'd like to kick of an
IISReset cmd on the machine)
Since I have R/W strings defined, I think this should be possible but am
struggling with the "how" part.
Any input would be greatly appreciated,
