When using Bulk Cofnig to set ping dependency is there any way to be able to do multiple hosts at once? When I do select multiple hosts and then pick a ping monitor from the Select Options... dialog, nothing gets assigned to any monitor on any of the selected hosts.

We have a need to fix this on ~1k monitors and doing this one server at a time would be massively time consuming.

We are running v 7.1.1.54

Hi J_Michael,

The Bulk Cofnig -> Set Ping Dependency is designed to set a monitor or group of monitors to their own Ping Monitor for a dependency.

I'm imagining that you may want to have the monitors of a server dependent on the Ping monitor for the same server and also dependent on a Ping monitor for a switch or other device. Try this, use Bulk Cofnig -> Set Ping Dependency to set all of your monitors in a group of servers to be dependent on their own Ping monitors. Then use Bulk Cofnig -> Set Monitor Dependencies to set the dependency for all of Ping monitors in the group to be dependent on the Ping monitor for the switch or other device.

Thanks
Quinn
