I´am using netlogin (dot1.x and mac-based) configuration on my switches. For the authentication against radius i use windows server 2008 r2 (nps). Although i work with prim an sec radius server i must check the availability of these servers because of the order of my boss. If both radius servers are not working, the switch config must disable the netlogin configuration automatically. So i decide to create an upm profile an an upm timer in order to check the life of both radius servers by pinging them priodical. It is working. If the radius server are not reachable the upm profile disables the netlogin configuration. When one radius server is alive again, the netlogin conf is enabled automatically again. To this i check the nps service with a tool called prtg. This is working too. But this is not enough....
Now I want to check the services of the server instead of pinging them. Is there any possibility to check the nps service of a windows server 2008 r2 by an upm profile? Any idea? Thanks in advance.
