We are looking for calculating the time for which servers are up in a month. We need to be able to find out the downtime in a month as a whole. This will help us calculate the availability of all the critical servers.

       Try to use Uptime command. Try to array the below command for the needed servers.

    uptime ATOL /s /d:11/01/2009 >>avail.txt
    uptime AUDITOR /s /d:11/01/2009 >>avail.txt
    uptime BAKBONE02 /s /d:11/01/2009 >>avail.txt

    I use uptime on monthly basis for critical servers. You may need to download uptime.exe.
