This article provides brief information and steps to resolve the following error when manually adding the IP SLA to SolarWinds:
Operations created through and already being managed by VoIP and Network Quality Manager.
All VNQM versions
The issue is caused by configuration of IP SLA on device.
Note: If VNQM prompts that the operation is already monitored by VNQM, check the Owner field in the IP SLA configuration on the router.
VoIP and Network Quality Manager sets the Owner field value using the following naming scheme:
<pollerMachineName> is the name of the server that is running the primary or additional poller assigned to a node that is a source node for an IP SLA operation.
<dbCatalogName> is the name of the database on the database server.
If you have the Owner field configured on the IP SLA operation like above, VNQM will think it created and is monitoring the operation.
If this is the issue, just remove the Owner entry for the operation on the device and you will be able to add it.
