Table of contents

Overview

This article provides information on monitoring free disk space in Windows 2000 using SAM.

Environment

All SAM versions

Detail

  • Ensure you have SP4 for Windows 2000 installed
  • Adding the Windows 2000 host as a node managed via WMI in Orion is probably the simplest and most straightforward method for monitoring disk volumes on a Windows 2000 host.
  • Another option is to enable SNMP on your Windows 2000 machines. Once enabled, add the node to Orion as an SNMP managed node, provide the SNMP community string, and when the resources are listed, select the drives you would like to monitor. 
  • Try enabling SNMP on the Windows 2000 node and managing it using SNMP
  • If you want to use a custom WMI query to detect free disk space on Windows 2000, try the following:

    SELECT FreeSpace FROM Win32_LogicalDisk WHERE DeviceID = "C:"
