Setup SNMP channels on root or group



Hello Paessler
Have setup many serveres with sensor of SNMP library (with HP mibs) to check the state of HP raid controllers. It is working fine and for each server/sensor I can setup the channel to send an e-mail if the state is not equal to "2". But it is a lot of work to setup each sensor/channel for every server. Is it possible to set this channel in the root so that all serveres automatic send an alarm if the state is not "2" Can't find out how to do it easy. Thank you for help.

Dear Ole,

supposing that you use the error-limits for this, than I'm afraid it is not possible to change such error-limits. But you could use the device templates for this, because they save the error- and warning-limits. So create a device template from one existing device (HP Server) in PRTG, and use this one to discover the other servers as new devices.

Best Regards.
