Dell PowerEdge Sensors



Setting up a new Dell PowerEdge 350 G15 Server (Windows Server 2022 Standard)

Installed the Dell OpenManage Admin for Managed Node and the SNMP server role but I'm unable to use the Dell System Health or the PowerEdge Physical Disk sensors... error: "No Such Name (SNMP error # 2)" and "The sensor could not find any disks on the monitored device. The reason might be a Windows security feature that prevents automatic integration of the Windows SNMP agent with the components from IBM. To resolve this issue, see https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/73914. (code: PE188)"

We have over 50 of these sensors working on other servers but this is the first 2022 sever and PowerEdge 350 G15

anyone else having this issue?

Managed to resolve this.

The latest Dell OpenManage Admin for Managed Node does not install the SNMP component by default.

Adding this as part of the install resolved the issue.

Hello Paul,

Thank you for your message and update. Glad to hear that you already identified the origin of the issue. This will most likely help other PRTG users facing it as well.

I wish you a nice evening and weekend.
