Overview

This article describes the procedure such that the group status changes when the status of any interface on any of the nodes within the group changes. By default, when the interface is down on a node, which is a member of a group, the group status does not change as the node is still up. 

Environment

All NPM versions

Steps

  1. On the Orion console, go to Settings > Manage Groups.
  2. Select the group.
  3. Select Add New Group to create a subgroup.
  4. Create a group of the interface.
  5. Add all the interfaces from the nodes in your main group.
  6. Expand the Advanced Option.
  7. Select Show Worst Status.
  8. Select Save. This creates a subgroup of interfaces that will change the Parent group status to "down" when one of the interfaces goes down.
