Add DHCP Network Service Assurance operations to devices

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Network Service Assurance operations measure the time taken to discover a DHCP server and then obtain a leased IP address from it. These operations ensure that your DHCP servers are operational and performing as expected.

You cannot add operations that have been previously created with SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager. If you have already created an operation with the same operation number, you must manually remove the operation from the device.

  1. Log in to your SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager server as an administrator.
  2. Click Settings > All Settings.
  3. Under Product Specific Settings, click VoIP & Network Quality (VNQM) Settings.
  4. Under Manage Network Service Assurance Operations, click Add new operations.
  5. Select Create new operations, and click Next.
  6. Select DHCP, and click Next.
  7. Select the nodes you want to add to your new DHCP operations, and click Next.

    If you do not see your Network Service Assurance routers in the list, you must add the devices before you can continue. For more information, see Adding Devices for Monitoring in the Web Console.

  8. Enter the IP address of the DHCP server to be tested, and click Next.
  9. Enter the frequency for the operation to be performed.
  10. Define your warning, critical, and maximum threshold values, and click Next.
  11. To rename operations or edit any other operation properties, select the operations you want to modify, and click Edit.
  12. Review the operations you want to create, and click Create Operations.

    Depending on the number of operations that are being created, this process can take several minutes.

  13. Click Go to VNQM Home to finish the procedure and return to the SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager home page.
