Hi, I"ve been searching on google and trying to figure a good way to send alerts if an exchange server is down.
So far i’ve learned that Nagios can do:
SMS / Send msg via AIM / Jabber / Yahoo and email of course.
I may be missing something in that list.
They say to try “YAPS”, but I do not have the requirements for that kind of SMS systems.
I did notice a nice way to message via cell phone on:
But you have to fill out this the fields and send to send out your alert.
When you hit sumbit, it goes through a ‘process.php’.
I"m wondering if anybody knew the package they are using?
Or the code ?
If not, I’m wondering simply if Nagios can browse or call a webiste?
“www.company.com/alert.aspx” or something.
Basicly, i’m looking for a simple solution :
IF exchange server services are down -> Then -> go open a browser and browse to our company’s external webserver.
(On which a web-service written in .NET will listen for a call and then notify us)
Next thing is, I’m wondering if a service failes on NT, then can it call a .bat (batch file) to execute on the server? (On which i can script what actions to do in the batch file) ? ?
Thanks in advance…
