Hello,

I created a new Lookup file for a exexml sensor.

Sadly it doesn't apper in the channel lookup list.

Hear my file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ValueLookup id="a_veeam.backupstatus.state" desiredValue="0" undefinedState="Error" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="PaeValueLookup.xsd">
	<Lookups>
		<SingleInt state="Ok" value="0">
		OK
		</SingleInt>
		<SingleInt state="Warning" value="1">
		Warning
		</SingleInt>
		<SingleInt state="Error" value="2">
		Failed
		</SingleInt>
	</Lookups>
</ValueLookup>

What is my error. I also reloaded the lookup file in the admin panel.

Hello,

Did you copy the lookup in the "custom" sub folder (per default: C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\lookups\custom)?
Also, you need to load the lookup into PRTG, you can do this by going to Setup>System Administration>Administrative Tools and click on Go! under Load Lookups and File Lists.

Hello,

Yes the file is in the right folder. I also run the "Load Lookups and File Lists". Other idea?

Hello Adrian,

I have tested the lookup in my PRTG installation, and it does show up in the list in PRTG. You can try copying it to the "lookups" folder as well, and check if it shows up then. Make sure that you load the lookups into PRTG again.


Kind regards,
