Event logs by email from W2K3

Posted on 2006-04-23
Last Modified: 2011-10-03
I am looking for a freeware, open source or script solution that will email me critical information from a Windows 2003 Server configured as a domain controller.  I want to get the event logs on a  weekly basis.  Other information such as free disk space would also be nice.

The solution must be clean, simple and well tested since this is a critical server.

I found this but it didn't seem clean, simple or well tested.

I'm spoiled by the Health Monitor Service in Small Business Server 2003 but that does not seem to be available on W2K3 Standard.

Any suggestions?

    AdvnetNet has some great monitoring software and offers free versions for smaller deployments on most all of their products.  The Event Log analyzer allows up to 5 devices to be monitored for free:
