Control System for NetWare Servers, OES Linux Servers and Windows Servers and Workstations.
A new very useful tool for a real-time, continuous control of servers and workstations activities and connections between them.
System to use on NetWare 5.x, NetWare 6.x, OES NetWare, OES Linux, Windows 2000, Windows 2003 and Windows XP platforms.
Extremely simple and easy to use and cheap at the same time.
An ideal complement to other expensive and sophisticated control systems based on SNMP protocol.
Can be use in local networks as well as in wide-area networks.
Requires only a simple agent running on every controlled system.
For communication uses TCP/IP protocol and a port number specified by administrator.
Features of main system module:
- displays status of servers works continuously on selected Netware server.
- displays status of servers and workstations works continuously on selected Windows server or workstation.
- displays names of servers to which the connections are correct in green, to which a lack of connection is between 15 and 30 minutes in violet, and those with a lack of connection above 30 minutes in red (Fig.1)
- enables a view of a few important parameters of controlled systems (Fig.2)
- creates logs with status changes of controlled servers.
Available version up to 50, 100, 200 servers and workstations.
DWMON50 module works on following platforms:NetWare 5.0, 5.1, 6.0, 6.5, OES NetWare
Windows 2000, 2003, XP (will be available soon)
OES Linux Server (will be available soon)
DWAGENT3 module works on following platforms:NetWare 5.0, 5.1, 6.0, 6.5, OES NetWare
Windows 2000, 2003, XP
OES Linux Server (will be available soon)
Usage for NetWare:
System consists of DWAGENT3.NLM module running on every controlled server and DWMON50.NLM running on main managing server. For demo purposes it is possible to start both modules on one server.
DWAGENT3.NLM modules should be placed into SYSTEM folder on SYS volume of every controlled server.
DWMON50.NLM module should be copied into SYSTEM folder on SYS volume of main managing server. A file DWMON50.CFG containing name definitions of all controlled servers should be placed into ETC folder on SYS volume of main managing server.
Usage for Windows:
System consists of DWAGENT3.EXE module running on every controlled Windows Server or Workstation.
DWAGENT3.EXE modules works as a service.
Command to start DWAGENT3.NLM (NetWare platform) is following:
DWAGENT3 /Nservername /Aipaddress /Pport
servername - is the name used by managing server to identify every controlled server. It is not necessary to keep the same server name as it is set in NDS. Maximum length of this name is 12 characters. In case of omitting this parameter the default value will be assigned as exists in NDS
ipaddress - is an IP address of the managing server. Required parameter.
port - is an IP address port number of the managing server. When it is omitted the default value is set to 2100.
To finish a running DWAGENT3 module it should be entered a command: unload dwagent3.
Command to start DWMON50.NLM (NetWare platform) module is following:
port - is IP adress port number on which the managing server will listen to control frames. While omitted the default value is set to 2100
To finish a running of DWMON50 module it should be pressed ESC key or entered a command: unload dwmon50.
Screens of DWMON50 module for NetWare are as below:
1. A screen with a status of controlled NetWare and Windows servers:
The first column shows a controlled server name.
The second column shows a work time of controlled server.
The third column shows a free space on SYS volume of controlled server (in %).
2. The screen with detailed information about selected NetWare server:
They are displayed following information about controlled servers:
A version of NetWare system and issue date.
A number of installed Service Pack.
IP server address.
Tree and Context, in which there is a server.
A number of concurrent connections.
Maximum number of connections that appear so far.
Information about free space of five volumes (in alphabetic order.)
A command Last Server Info displays the last registered information about the last selected server.
3. A screen with no information about selected Server:
In case of lack of connection with a server the screen as above is displayed.
