Good Morning all,

I'd really appreciate some help here.

I've done countless research but I'm still stuck.

I've installed Icinga2 web client on a CentOS7 server and the most I've been able to achieve is to monitor a windows server by editing the /etc/icinga2/conf.d/hosts.conf file and adding the following lines:

object Host "server_name" {
        address = "10.10.10.10"
        check_command = "hostalive"
}

Can anyone please refer me to some clear examples of how I can monitor a windows server 2008 r2 host hard drive space?

I've read that using wmi with icinga2 is easier but I have no clue as to how I should go about using that.

Thanks a lot in advance.

I don't use Icinga2, I use Nagios. Even so, I believe there is a plugin that you will need to install to be able to use WMI.

Some of this page might help you with that: https://sites.google.com/site/salinuxacademy/monitoring/icinga-2/icinga2-and-windows-monitoring-wmi

I took all day yesterday and installed Nagios. I just finished the configuration. Got it to work flawlessly with our windows server after several hours of research. Using Nagios core. Thanks a lot mate.

If you're able to run a windows-server based option, you can give NetCrunch a try, and get set up monitoring your Windows devices in minutes.
