Probe to run commands remotely

Hi all,

 

I am trying to trigger a command on a system from which an alarm was raised. It's very easy to run a command on the NAS server, triggered by an alarm. However, it doesn't seem so easy to run the script on the system that raised the alarm.

 

I have a LUA script that can pick up where the alarm came from and send a callback function to the ntservices probe. This is almost a solution, but I need to launch a command, not stop/start a service.

 

So is there a probe you can send a callback function to which will then run a command on that remote box? I have had a look through some probes and haven't found anything that may do this yet.

 

Any help, much appreciated.

thanks
Paul
