Hi

I am sure there is a tool that will let you write to the event log (command line). Can anyone remind me what it is please?

Many thanks

logevent.exe from the Server 2000 Resource Kit will do the job:

logevent -m \\<servername> -s W -t 50 -r "UPS triggering shutdown" -e 1 "MainBodyText"

-m = name of machine where you want the event log written
s = severity
  S: Success
  I: Information (This is the default setting. If you do not specify a severity level, Logevent.exe uses I.)
  W: Warning
  E: Error
  F: Failure
-t = timeout, default is 60,000 seconds
-r = event heading
-e= event type, 1 is default (not mandatory)

I use it when my UPS triggers remote shutdowns, and it works pretty well.
