Monitoring space for every domain PC?

Hi folks,

I'm trying to figure out a simple way to monitor space on a production domain for every server on the domain. For example, we have a domain called, "TEST" (for the sake of example) with 20 servers on it. I'd like to be able to use policy or something to get nightly updates in an email saying how much space is on each drive, free space, etc... just so I know when to clean it up.

Anybody have any ideas? If you have the VBScript for it (or whatever approach) then I'll give you some good points :) I'm a policy junky so if we can use that... I'd prefer to :)

    I'm not the programmer, so don't expect me to program something.. But if you have some money to spend and want to do it good, just go for HPSIM (if you use HP servers). Normally this is standard fuctionallity that your server vendor should be able to create..

    The simplest way is to use standard Perfomance applet from Control Panel\Administration\ and get "net send message" when conditions met. :)
