Monitoring for managed DNS/DHCP Servers can be configured and enabled on the Monitoring Service Management page and on the configuration Details tab.

Note: You must be an administrator to enable the DNS/DHCP Server Monitoring service.

To enable the DNS/DHCP monitoring service:

  1. Select the Administration tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Administration page.
  2. Under Network, click Monitoring Service Management.
  3. Under BlueCat DNS/DHCP Server Monitoring Service, click Edit Monitoring Parameters.
  4. Under Polling Interval Time, set the polling interval:
    • Interval Time—how frequently the monitoring service polls the server. Enter a value in the field and select Seconds, Minutes, Hours, or Days from the drop-down menu. The minimum interval is 30 seconds.
  5. Under Failure Detection Count, set the failure detection count:
    • Failure Detection Count—the number of consecutive failures permitted before a problem affects the monitoring statistics. When set to 1, every interruption in a service affects the monitoring statistics. When set to a higher value, temporary service fluctuations do not affect the monitoring statistics; in effect, the temporary failures are ignored. Enter a value in the field between 1 and 2,147,483,647. The default value is 2.
  6. Under Server Status Refresh Time, set the refresh time:
    • Refresh Time—the interval at which Address Manager updates monitoring information in the web interface. Enter a value in the field and select Seconds, Minutes, Hours, or Days from the drop-down menu.
  7. Click Update to save your changes and return to the Monitoring Service Management page.
  8. Under BlueCat DNS/DHCP Server Monitoring Service, click Enable.
