I'm trying to get our Lenovo servers (thinkSystem and SystemX) into PRTG so i can be aware of hardware problems, and i'm not really getting anywhere - so need advice.
At present the servers feed into a XClarity IPMI management tool which works fine but does not integrate to our single pain of glass approach.
The Current implementation of PRTG's IPMI sensor however seems somewhat lacking. I've managed to add a test server in by adding -F lan2 to the USER field in the IPMI sensor, but it only returns 4 sets of hardware: FAN, TEMP, PSU and VOLTAGE. Nothing that would indicate CPU, DISK or MEMORY problems.
Next we get to the SOAP connector. It seems to have problems on Lenovo machines. we had a memory failure which it picked up a monto ago, but has been red ever since. XClarity doesn't show any problems, but this SOAP sensor insists that the memory is broke, making monitoring quite difficult.
Does anyone have advice about improving the monitoring of these servers, or making ti all behave ?
