We currently use software called What's Up which polls servers and our Cisco devices. I want Ciscoworks to notify us, if a branch goes down etc... instead of using What's Up as this software using Ping to poll the devices and this is not reliable.
What is the best setting to use for Ciscoworks, I want to know when the devices are down and if there are any critical errors?
Any other tip from anyone who has this already setup?
Just go to DFM >> Devices >> Device Management and select your concerned devices. Then make sure that the interfaces you want to monitor was set to 'TRUE' in DFM (This is for SNMP). Also there is a section for IPs which CiscoWorks will try to ping. You can set the concerned IPs to 'TRUE'.
You can then configure a 'notification group' in DFM to send all 'Critical' Events (Or/And Alerts) to any email addres of your choice. This notifcation group is mapped to a 'Email Notification'. You will need to configure your mail server in LMS before this works (Common Services >> Server >> Admin >> System Preferences).
We have configured the outside and inside Interface with official ipv6 adresses, set a default route on outside Interface to our router, we also have definied a rule , which also gets hits, to permit tcp from inside Interface to any6.
In Syslog I also se...
