  1. As my monitored machines are updating to the new Windows 10, the agent simply will not start automatically.. Any idea why?
  2. I am attempting to simply change the name of a client workstation form "Steve Doe" to "Brandon Doe" and it has so far been unsuccessful. I have tried from the client side, and from the dashboard manager. So far all attempts have not worked. When I attempt to do it from the client side, the client goes offline, and comes back up ~ 3 minutes later (it doesn't actually turn off, pulseway just detects it as offline). Doing it locally freezes application and forces it to be stuck at "Loading Scheduled Tasks...". I have ran into this before. I fear uninstalling will prevent a re installation. The only thing that solved it in the past was a reinstall of windows. Any help appreciated.
  3. Hi Guys, Not sure if this has been requested before so apologies in advance if it has. I had a customer with a slow PC and wanted to add the Disk Queue Length performance counter to see if that was causing the slowness however didn't want to have to log into her machine. Normally I would go via the Dashboard -> Edit Computer Settings and make whatever changes were necessary. However Performance Counters can't seem to be added this way as there is no Add button: Is this a bug or missing feature? If it's missing, it would be handy to have as you can pretty much do everything else from here and it's not always convenient having to log into the users machine Cheers

    Need scripts?

    Hi. Admin, please remove if not allowed. I have a website where you can request scripts and help others by sharing scripts for everyday IT. http://FixItScripts.xyz I'm going to add a Pulseway section to it later.. Is total free.. Please check it out.
  5. Is there a way to monitor a service and started automaticly if the status is stopped. is this possible natively or does it require some kind of manual schedulet task to make this work? if it requires a schedulet task then this could be seen as feature request to create a automated service restart rule into the rules.
  6. iptime Broadband Route is in use. I'm trying to boot my computer from a cell phone to a cell phone. For example, the DDNS address provided in iptime Broad Bridge is referred to as ABC.iptime.org Is there any way to boot the computer from outside? Currently, it doesn't work well if you want to boot your computer and boot from the outside to the outside of your computer. However, it works well with other applications.
  7. I tried to find a way to monitor hp and dell servers. Ive been using other more complex system that is doing a great job by finding all hardware sensors automatically via snmp. Pulseway is much more simple to use and configure though but it really lacks in hardware monitoring for server administrators. What i did was i created two files for event log that you can try out and import into your servers. I wish Pulseway would either add support for hp and dell server into their hardware module or rework the snmp module so we can add snmp templates for autodiscovery of hardware devices, like check_mk, nagios... Update my files didnt work that well i just tried them out on a hp server. I made a new one that i will try out some more and post here next week.
  8. Hello, we'd like to move our pcmonitor database from the current SQL Server (2014 Standard) in one Domain to another SQL Server (2016 Enterprise) in a different domain. The Pulseway Enterprise/Admin Server won't change and is already a member of the target domain. As far as I remember the process would be: Stop Pulseway Services Backup DB on old SQL Server Create SQL Login for the Service on the new SQL Server Restore DB on new SQL Server Edit the connectionstring in the Registry (HKLM\SOFTWARE\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor Admin\DatabaseConnectionString) The connection string is encrypted - what would be the required format? Edit the connectionstring in the Hosting folder for the follwing web.config files ..\Hosting\Service\web.config Start Pulseway Services Did I miss anything important? If not, all I'd need would be the format of the connectionstring in the registry Cheers, Jonathan
  9. I have Pulseway configured on 60 servers all at different locations. I'm waiting to deploy to the workstations until I get it configured just right. My question is: is there a way to get a list of installed programs across all devices? Say I need to know what version of chrome is installed on all the devices, to gauge which ones need updated etc -how would I go about doing that if it's possible?
  10. Hello, I figured I would re-post this issue we have been having. Only to solve one issue this time. I have successfully uninstalled the pulseway application from a user's computer that was having major issues. (Deleted all pulseway services, related folders, and registry entries). However we are unable to install the program again. The user is using Windows 7 64 bit. Please assist, as I don't want the users PC to be not monitored.
  11. It would be nice if instead of only by date or severity we could sort notifications by type. All low disk space alerts, all server offline etc.
  12. Hi Is it possible to install the Pulseway manager without installing the agent. Would like to use the Manager on a laptop that doesn't need to be monitored, allowing me to change the config of agents on remote PCs.
  13. I've just installled Pulseway and on the setup screen I don't have the option to create a new account. The option doesn't even appear. I've attached a screenshot of the window. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  14. Hi.. I would like a generic WMI module - just like Performance Counters. It would be nice. Best Regards, Martin Stevnhoved Abakion A/S
  15. Hello. We have a server with a lot of brute force attacks RDP: 3389 SQL: 1433 We can see in event viewer two repeated events (failed loing attempts) eventID: 4625 Microsoft Windows Security Auditing eventID: 18456 MSSQLSERVER We want to receive a notification when we receive "5 o more" failed login attempts in RDP and SQL. Can we use "Pulseway Counters" or "Pulseway evenlog"? How?
  16. Can someone tell me why this script works locally from the server but not from Pulseway. I've tested running the script both with impersonation enabled and disabled. Both tests were done on server 2012 R2. One with default Powershell version and one with 5.1. This script runs perfectly fine from the server itself just not through pulseway. I have several scripts that give the same type of error. I'd appreciate any help so I can figure this out. It seems like Pulseway doesn't like certain characters? ForEach ($COMPUTER in (Get-ADComputer -Filter '*' | Select -ExpandProperty Name)) { $key = “SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\Results\Install” $keytype = [Microsoft.Win32.RegistryHive]::LocalMachine $RemoteBase = [Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey]::OpenRemoteBaseKey($keytype,$Server) $regKey = $RemoteBase.OpenSubKey($key) $KeyValue = $regkey.GetValue(”LastSuccessTime”) $System = (Get-Date -Format "yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss") if ($KeyValue -lt $System) { Write-Host " " Write-Host $computer "Last time updates were installed was: " $KeyValue } } This is what it looks like when ran from the server without involving pulseway
  17. Hi. I know that as RRAS module has been discussed earlier in this forum. But it would be really nice with a simple module to start with, og som ideas on how to set some monitoring up today. We have found the PowerShell Cmdlet "Get-RemoteAccessHealth" that returns the status for alle components. We would like to raise a notification if the HealtState on any components is different from Disabled or OK. Anny ideas?

  20. Is there anyway to configure powershell impersonation remotely? I am trying to run a few different powershell scripts and I'm getting access denied. I assume BC it's running as system. Is there a way around this ? Or a way to configure this option remotely? This is the script I'm trying to run. It runs fine under my account. Import-Module ActiveDirectory Get-ADComputer -Filter {OperatingSystem -Like "Windows 7*"} | foreach {restart-computer $_.name -force} Thanks in advance
  21. Is there anyway to get a report of the results of a script that was ran. For instance the check if computer has 2 hdd script, If I run this against 90 computers I don't want to click on each computer, click on the script, click again to see the results. It would be awesome if I was able to just see a list of failed and a list of passed, Is this possible?
  22. Hi, at the moment, if I go through the config, I see allways a lot of Stuff in the Server Modules which I don't need all the time. I think, it would be better, to change this to a variable system, where I can aktivate/deaktivate the Server Modules I want to use (see). And with such a solution, maybe, you could make it like a PlugIn-System, so that the company behind some Server Software can create their own PlugIn whithout telling their secrets. For example. Sometimes I use Altaro VM Backup. I see Windows Server Backup and StorageCraft ShadowProtect, but I have to ignore them and create my own notification over the Event Log filter. With my idea, I don't activate Windows Server Backup and StorageCraft ShadowProtect, so I don't see them. The guys behind Altaro VM Backup created a PlugIn which I can add an activate, and this will be shown in the Server Modules, and so I can monitor it. I hope you understand what my point is. I know it's not urgent, and it's not a must have, but in my opinion it would help to keep the configuration of the agent clean, and would give some developers the possibility to support your monitoring solution without telling secrets of their holy cow. Thanks, Christian.
  23. I'm unable con configure Azure Server in Pulseway. After creating certificate following manual procedure instruccions and uploading certificates to azure keeps showing attached error. Server 2012 localized Spanish.
