Warranty Monitoring

You can monitor the expiry dates of warranties on devices that have been configured to provide this information. You can then keep track of devices with expired warranties, further reducing costly maintenance.

Warranty expiry can only be monitored on devices manufactured by the following vendors:

  • Acer
  • Dell
  • Gateway
  • HP
  • Lenovo
  • Toshiba
  1. Click Administration > Defaults > Warranty Monitoring.
  2. Select Monitor Warranty Expiry Date.
  3. Click Propagate to distribute the default properties to existing devices. Otherwise, the changes you make will only apply to new devices.
  4. Click Save.

SolarWinds N-central begins monitoring warranty dates on new devices that are added to SolarWinds N-central. If you selected Propagate, the changes are applied to the devices currently managed by SolarWinds N-central.
