Running Custom Tools

If you want to run some other utility on the node, you can create a Custom Tool. A custom tool can run your utility and pass the node's IP address, hostname, or SNMPv2 community string as parameters.

The available parameters are ${IP}, ${HOSTNAME}, ${COMMUNITY}. Placing any of these strings into your command line passes the appropriate parameter to the utility.

Example: DameWare Mini Remote Control (MRC)

Let us set up a custom tool to establish DameWare remote control of a node on your NTM map. Assuming you already have the DameWare utility installed on your NTM server, here is how we create the appropriate custom tool.

1.   Right-click any node and then select Use external tool > Custom Tools > Add Custom Tools.

2.   Add a custom tool defined as follows:

Name: DameWare MRC

Executable Path: C:\Program Files\SolarWinds\DameWare Mini Remote Control 10.0\DWRCC.exe (by default)

Command line arguments:

dwrcc.exe -c: m:${IP} -u:myUsername -p:"my Password"

3.   To use DameWare Mini Remote Control, right-click any node on the map and then select Use external tool > Custom Tools > DameWare MRC

For more information on DameWare command line parameters see http://support.dameware.com/kb/article.aspx?ID=300002

Example: DameWare Remote Control (DRS)

Let us set up a custom tool to establish DameWare remote control of a node on your NTM map. Assuming you already have the DameWare utility installed on your NTM server, here is how we create the appropriate custom tool.

1.   Right-click any node and then select Use external tool > Custom Tools > Add Custom Tools.

2.   Add a custom tool defined as follows:

Name: DameWare DRS

Executable Path: C:\Program Files\SolarWinds\DameWare Remote Support 10.0\ (by default)

3.   To use DameWare Mini Remote Control, right-click any node on the map and then select Use external tool > Custom Tools > DameWare DRS.
