Looking to compare latest NPM features with previous versions of NPM?
The NPM new feature summary offers a comparison of new features and improvements offered with this release.
Updated October 24, 2016
The goal of this article is to walk through the setup that is required to get PuTTy to work as an executed program using alerts.
Note: This will only work with NPM 12.0.1 or earlier (or Core 2016.2 and earlier). Using this with version 12.1 crashes the application.
1. Create an Orion service account on the Primary poller that is a Local admin.
2. Open Service Manager and set the following three services to Log On As the newly created Orion service account:
3. Log in to the server vusing the newly created Orion service account, load up PuTTy, and connect to the servers/devices that you want to be able to run the executable to connect to. This is required in order to get the RSA/SSH key accepted for the service account. If you do not do this step, it will not work
You should now be able to use putty.exe via the alerting actions to connect to and run commands on affected servers/devices.
