Before you begin:

  • The first time the Toolset tools are accessed, a security warning may be displayed. Click Yes to allow the Toolset integration.

Configure a Toolset integration

  1. Right-click any monitored object displayed within the SolarWinds Web Console, then click Settings, then click SNMP Community String.

    The first time you launch a tool requiring an SNMP community string from the right-click menu, the SNMP Community String window displays.

  2. Click Menu Options, and then configure the right-click menu as needed. Right-click any monitored object displayed within the SolarWinds Web Console.
  3. Click Automatic Menu Items, and then check either or both, if available, of the options listed.

    These options expand the list of available menu items by incorporating menu links to MIB browser bookmarks and Real Time Interface Monitor saved reports, respectively.

Add programs to a Toolset integration menu

Before you begin:

  • To add an external script to the Toolset Integration menu, save the script in an appropriate location on the install volume of your SolarWinds server (e.g. <InstallVolume>:\\Scripts\).
  • To add an external application to the Toolset Integration menu, install the application in an appropriate location on the install volume of your SolarWinds server (e.g. <InstallVolume>:\\Application\).
  1. Open SWToolset.MenuOptions in a text editor.

    By default, SWToolset.MenuOptions is located in the following folder: <InstallVolume>:\\Program Files\SolarWinds\Common\.

  2. Save a copy of SWToolset.MenuOptions as SWToolset_Old.MenuOptions.
  3. Add the following line between the <MenuOptions></MenuOptions> tags of the SWToolset.MenuOptions file:

    <MenuOption Visible="TRUE" Title="ApplicationName" BeginGroup="FALSE" HasSubMenu="FALSE" ExecString="<InstallVolume>:\\Application\ExecutableFile" Icon="" Extra="" Parent="" Required="4"/>

    The string supplied for Title is the name for the added script or application that will display in the menu. The string supplied for the ExecString is the path to the script or application executable file.

  4. Save the new SWToolset.MenuOptions to automatically update the Toolset Integration menu.
