Although it is useful to manage bespoke Checks on an individual Device, sometimes it may be necessary to roll manage the same Check on multiple devices. This can range from a selection of devices, to all devices under a Client or Site.
Rather than do this on device-by-device, we have include the ability to add, edit and delete Checks across multiple devices. This not only saves time but ensures Check consistency across devices.
To ensure accurate monitoring, Checks are only added to those devices capable of supporting that Check. For example an additional Disk Space Check for drive D:\ will only be added to those devices that have a D:\ partition or a Windows Check is only added to a Windows computer.
For full visibility whilst awaiting synchronization, all changes are viewable in the View menu's Pending Actions dialog with the option to revoke the change. These changes are also recorded in Report menu's User Audit Report.
Feature Associated Checks
Depending on the feature, checks may be automatically added to monitor its state. For example, when Backup & Recovery is added to a device we automatically add a 24x7 Windows Service Check (to alert if the Backup Service Controller services stops) and a Daily Safety Check Backup Check to monitor the backup session status.
As these specific feature associated checks are automatically added when you enable the feature, they are excluded from any method to add checks to multiple devices (including the Add a Check on Multiple Devices methods) to avoid accidental duplication or monitoring of a non-installed product.
If you wish to add another instance of this specific check for this product (in addition to the associated check) it must be added per-device.
