Monitoring disk availability in via failover cluster manager



Good morning Paessler! We have a customer who uses failover cluster management in server 2016 to manage the ownership of disks between 2 SQL machines. Is there a sensor or combo of sensors that can ensure that this is working correctly? At the moment we use disk space sensors on both SQL servers and acknoweldge the alarming disks provided they are green on the secondary host. However this is not foolproof and i found that we had WMI Sluggish warnings on these rather than alarms despite neither SQL host being able to see the disks for over ten hours.

Please advise me the best way of tackling this if you can :)

Thanks in advance ma dudes Sam

Hey Sam,

Nice to hear from you, hope you're doing well? Did you already see this one:
Can I Monitor Mounted Windows Volumes with PRTG?

Not sure if it applies to your use case, though :)

Kind regards,
Stephan Linke, Tech Support Team
