    Email alerts when server restarts.

    We had a few wide area mains failures today which caused a few IT problems.

    Does anyone use.know of a simple method (not involving a whole network monitoring setup ) of getting a server to send an email once its restarted so at least I get to know which schools have a had a dip?

    regards

    Simon

    Well pc startup script (vbs etc) should do it?

    Or do you mean virtual side rather than server server?

    Should be an event raised by shutdown tracker, and you can attach tasks to events - depending on server version maybe need to use 'blat' to send an email.

    Meanwhile ... Ripley's in a spot of bother,again.

    Easy, scheduled tasks to run on startup. Easier if using 2008 as there is a built in option to email someone via smtp and even tie it to a specific event in the event log. With 2003 you nee to use a commad line smtp client Blat - A Win32 Command Line SMTP Mailer | Free Communications software downloads at SourceForge.net to send the email to you.

    While you are all here, I have a much simpler problem. Where do I find the Shutdown Event Tracker records?
    I'm having a bit of a problem with unexpected shutdowns (on a Win 2008 server) so I'd like to locate these events precisely. But I can't find any relevant records in Event Log. MS Help is great about telling me how to record the reasons for planned shutdowns and how to record unexpected shutdowns when I restart, but no use at all when I want to find this information later.
    If it is in an event log, which? whats the ID? and what's the source? Please, anyone.
