Asigra backup service

This service monitors Asigra backup sets. You will need a separate instance of the Asigra Backup service to monitor each backup set.

You need to use a Windows probe when monitoring an Asigra backup set on a device using a Red Hat Enterprise or CentOS Linux operating system. To ensure the Windows probe successfully discovers the Linux device, you need to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Distributable Package on the device where the Windows probe is installed. For more information on the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Distributable Package, see http://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/download/details.aspx?id=5555.

After upgrading an agent that monitors the Asigra Backup service, you will need to stop the Windows agent services, place the Asigra .DLL files to the agent's bin directory and re-start the Windows agent services.

Asigra v12.x

For SolarWinds N-central to monitor Asigra v12.x backup sets, you must redistribute the Asigra API bundle as well as the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Distributable Package, which includes the msvcp100.dll and msvcr100.dll files, as follows:

  • If you are using a previously-installed Probe and you are installing Asigra for the first time, you must store the API bundle and the MSVC .DLL files in the probe's bin directory.
  • If you are monitoring Asigra using a previously-installed agent, you must store the API bundle and the MSVC .DLL files in the agent's bin directory.
  • If you include an Asigra discovery during the installation of a probe, ensure the MSVC .DLL files are stored in the location configured in the DLL path field of the installation software.
  • If you are adding the API bundle and the new MSVC .DLL files to an existing agent or probe configuration, you need to re-start the agent or probe after storing the MSVC .DLL files so that SolarWinds N-central can start using them.
