Monitor Network Location Windows Server

Would it be possible to get a feature added to monitor the Network Location Category on Windows servers. 

We recently had an issue where the network interface came up but the Network Category became Public rather than DomainAuthenticated, this meant that although the server was showing up in S24 it was effectively down as the incorrect Firewall settings had been applied. 

It is logged in Event Viewer, Microsoft-Windows-NetworkProfile/Operational, and you can see the category applied to the interface. It can also be viewed using Powershell commands ie Get-NetConnectionProfile.

Ideally we would like an option to monitor NetworkCategory and provide a warning alert if NetworkCategory = Public or Private, and clear when NetworkCategory = DomainAuthenticated

Hi Paul,

You can write a custom plugin to monitor the Network Category and set thresholds to be notified when there is a breach. Please refer our documentation to set up a plugin monitor.

Hope this helps. Let us know for questions, if any.
