Unable to edit Custom Properties when a node is down

Updated March 30, 2017


Custom Properties are not being saved on nodes when their status is Down.


All NPM versions


You cannot edit Custom Properties on nodes that are down while being monitored by the SolarWinds agent. When the node is down, you will get a message saying that NPM cannot communicate with the agent. This prevents custom properties from being edited and the submit button stops working.


Switch to a different polling method such as SNMP, WMI, or ICMP, or use the Mute Node option (NPM 12.1 and later versions).

See the Edit node properties in NPM topic in the NPM Admin Guide for related information.
