Hi

I manage around 60 windows 2003 file servers, that all run the volume shadow copy service, and i need to know if there is a tool or srcipt that i can run that will allow me to query all the servers to make sure that the snap shot did run?

Thanks for any help

when the shadow copy service fails/end, an event will be created
you can configure your server using tools to inform you when some events (you can select) occur
you can also use eg next tool (free trail 30 days )
