Overview

This article addresses the issue where the .jar script does not run from the Orion Alert Action.

Environment

NPM 11 and later

Steps

Note: SolarWinds does not support troubleshooting of the .jar script functionality in NPM. The following steps describe how to test the functionality to execute a script on Orion without troubleshooting the script.

  1. Create two .cmd scripts. For example:
    • net stop Spooler​
    • net start Spooler
  2. Save the scripts (NStop.cmd and NStart.cmd) to a shared location in the main Orion server.
  3. Create the alert.
  4. On the Trigger Actions tab, click Add Action.
  5. Select to Execute an External Program and click Configure Actions.
  6. Assign a name.
  7. In the Network path to external program field, put \\<servername or IP>\<share name>\NStop.cmd
  8. Add another action.
  9. Select to Execute an External program and click Configure Actions.
  10. Assign a name.
  11. In the network path to external program field, put \\<servername or IP>\<share name>\NStart.cmd
  12. Simulate the action and check if the printer spooler stops and starts when you execute the action.
