[smokeping-users] Checking an Exchange Server

We have been having some problems with the exchange server we have outsourced. I am trying to collect uptime data of this server. When I use Curl at the command line I get back data:

root at UbuntuServer:/etc/smokeping/config.d# curl https://mail.hostaccount.com
<head><title>Document Moved</title></head>
<body><h1>Object Moved</h1>This document may be found <a HREF="https://mail.hostaccount.com/owa/">here</a></body>root at UbuntuServer:/etc/smokeping/config.d#<mailto:root at UbuntuServer:/etc/smokeping/config.d#>

However, when I configure it is the Targets file:

++ ExchangeServer
probe = Curl # if this should be the default probe
menu = Exchange Server
title = Exchange Server
host = mail.hostaccount.com
agent = User-Agent: Lynx/2.8.4rel.1 libwww-FM/2.14 SSL-MM/1.4.1 OpenSSL/0.9.6c
extraargs = -6 --head --user ddemland at losspreventionworks.com:XXXXXX
extrare = / /
follow_redirects = yes
include_redirects = yes
insecure_ssl = 1
interface = eth0
pings = 5
ssl2 = 1
timeout = 20
urlformat = https://%host%/ # mandatory

I get no data populated in the graph. I think this is nothing wired, but I am new with SmokePing so I have no idea for sure.

Thank You,

Assuming you're just trying to plot network latencies, between the Smokeping machine and the Exchange server, it's no different than any other network host...  in that case, if you're not getting data, it's either due to misconfiguration somewhere or simply because the Smokeping host has no network path to the server.  This would require looking at Smokeping itself, not Exchange.

If you're trying to do something weird (i.e. Exchange-specific), maybe you could let us know what that is so we can try to help (or even determine if Smokeping is the right tool to be using).

I have having a problem checking an Exchange Server. I have tried different probes and I can get no data on the server. Does anyone have an idea on the best way to configure SmokePing to test an Exchange Server?
