Fan Status (Intel) Service

The Fan (Intel) Status service monitors the status and speed of specified fans for devices that use Intel motherboards and that have the Intel SMS software installed.

Special Note

This service operates in conjunction with the vendor-supplied hardware agent and requires SNMP to be configured so that it is accessible from both the MSP N-central Agent and the MSP N-central Probe.

The following are the requirements in order to associate this service with a device:

  • The device must undergo discovery using a Probe-based asset scan.
  • You need to enable SNMP enabled on the device on the Properties tab of the device.
  • Once you enable SNMP for the device, you need to configure a community string. The default community string is public.
