Monitoring only Auto startup new services


Article ID: 143311

NIMSOFT PROBES DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)


We have a requirement to monitor only Auto startup services from ntservices probes.



1) Monitor only Auto startup services

2) Add all new services with Auto startup to monitoring

3) Email the major/critical alerts when these Auto startup services is down


How  this be achieved in UIM using ntservices  probe ?


Release : 8.51



Here is one method to accomplish this using the adminconsole and an IM Console Configuration Package.

In the adminconsole, configure these options as follows:


Second, create a IM configuration package with the following contents:

1- All Profiles are removed (see "<services>" clear section).

2- If a Service is automatic then the profile will be made active.

3- "Major" Alarms will be triggered when an Automatic Service is not running

4- If a Service is not automatic, the profile will exist, but not active.


5- From there, you may create an Auto Operator rule like the following:
