  • Setting zPingMonitor to truw should disable pinging, but the error you're seeing indicates that you have a template bound or a datasource set for the device that is trying to run a command via SSH against the device, but none of the information Zenoss ...

  • I've set zPingMonitorIgnore=true for all my devices yet I keep getting this message: "zCommandUsername is not set so SSH-based commands will not run". I thought zPingMonitor ignore should disable pinging altogether. Any idea what I'm missing? ------------------------------ ...

  • Hello, It seems monitoring templates are only running when a device is first created and when previous "Down events" have been closed. The way that I've confirmed this is by leaving Zenoss as is for a full day: not a single monitoring template runs. ...

  • Hi Team, We have windows servers configured. Due to some reason, we have not receiving alerts since Monday 10th Dec.  What could be the reason? What i am supposed to check in regards with this? Awaiting response. ------------------------------ Nilesh ...

  • Further to that, if the command is run from within Zenoss, the username and password is defined in the zCommandUsername and zCommandPassword properties, which make for a generic command ID and not who initiated the command within the application. I suspect ...

  • You can use ${dev/zCommandUsername} to get the userid Zenoss is using to ssh to the device. I think that's what you are looking for. If you are just executing the commands on the Zenoss server, everything is run as the zenoss user.  ------------------------------ ...

  • This has been something of a pain for myself, as well - I have a task on my end to try and figure out what is causing us to run long, and I suspect it might have something to do with when we upgrade our ZenPacks and update our remote collectors. I have ...

  • Hi, We're certainly affected by this. Although pleasingly have not seen it for a while but then we have currently set the blocking timeout to 0, i.e. do not use blocking timeout! as we can't be in a situation where as there may not be access to zenoss ...

  • Removing or editing this file is definitely the way to get the datasources collecting again - but it doesn't get to the root cause of the problem which is that devices are not responding to zenpython fast enough and are then "blocking".  The real problem ...

  • I'm performing some custom logic where my user commands are using a shell script on disk. So a typical command would look like /bin/sh /var/zenoss/command.sh actionX ${device/id} In my command.sh script for example, actionX is $1, ${device/id} ...

  • Is this a command being executed by zencommand?  If not, please explain further. And where do you want to gather the parameters like the device and user?  In a template?  in the event console? Cheers, Jane ------------------------------ Jane Curry ...

  • Don't know the answer to that, Jad.  But traditionally, Zenoss Core pre version 5, did not have audit logging - only in the paid version. Cheers, Jane ------------------------------ Jane Curry Skills 1st United Kingdom jane.curry@skills-1st.co.uk ...
