Notify on server reboot

By sleach ·
I would like to know if anyone has a solution on how to be notified via email when my Windows 2003 server reboots? Our practice management system has a process (not a service) that needs to be manually restarted every time the server reboots. The problem is that without checking it every day, I don't know. Is this possible? Either with some scripting or a third party application? Thanks!!!

Server Reboot notification

by dhw In reply to Notify on server reboot

Try setting an alert in the Performance Counters and alerts when the System Time is Under 100 seconds (or similar - find what works for you) and configure it to alert you via email.
I think that if you set it as OVER a certain limit things might go screwy.
Its the easiest way I can think of

You can use SendEmail, a free SMTP command line utilty that you can set up as a scheduled task to run upon startup (not logon, otherwise someone will have to log on to trigger this). We have an Exchange server onsite, so we simply defined the server we wanted to monitor as a relay which allowed the monitored server to send emails very easily to our IT folks.

Is cheaper than some of the other suggestions here and works great.

Have a schedule email go out every 2 hours, as that is about how long the system will be up before it needs a reboot, for various reasons.
