    Doesnt seem to work for me I get

    Line:2
    Char: 38
    Error: Expected Identifier


    Code:
    Dim logon, fndconeN, fndctwo, fnexchange
    Dim filesys, objshell, servermessage,
     
    Set filesys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set objshell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
     
    fndconeN = "OFF"
    fndctwo = "OFF"
    fnexchange = "OFF"
     
    If filesys.FileExists ("\\itnm\c$\WINDOWS\win.ini") Then fndconeN = "ON"
    If filesys.FileExists ("\\rgbackup\c$\WINDOWS\win.ini") Then fndctwo = "ON"
    If filesys.FileExists ("\\rgmail2\c$\WINDOWS\win.ini") Then fnexchange = "ON"
     
    servermessage = "itnm	= " & fndconeN & VBCR & "rgbackup		= " & fndctwo & VBCR &"rgmail2	= " & fnexchange
     
    retval = objShell.Popup(servermessage, ,"Server Status",0 + 64 )
     
    wscript.quit
    EDIT: Ok fixed it by removing the comma at the end of the second line, cool script

    Does deleting the win.ini file shut the server down?

    or you could use uptime.exe

    uptime.exe \\daedalus
    \\daedalus has been up for: 179 day(s), 0 hour(s), 45 minute(s), 59 second(s)

    You can just run it as a batch if you want and pipe the text to a file.

    179 days isn't bad for windows servers :P, even then the last power down was due an extended powercut. Means I have some patches to catch up with though!

    I find PeerMonitor very handy for a basic but useful 'at a glance' view that my servers are all still up - also added to it IPs of access points around the school that regularly get turned off etc...

    http://www.danielclarke.com/peermonitor/

    Kind of easier than running a script every time you want to check...

    Or the no ping script I did:

    http://www.edugeek.net/forums/showth...highlight=ping

    I'll do a quick web page on getting this at some point so you can get it working with Blat. Some may find this handy.
    I'll add it to the Admin Bar too at some point.

    Or you could use Vista's 'Server Ping' side bar gadget:

    Yeah there are already a number of ways to do this. I've used nagios in the past as it'll check individual services on the server too and then e-mail you if something dies. Good stuff. I've used poweradmin in the past too but that's for windows boxen.
