I have setup a performance monitor alert that monitors hard disk space. It works fine and writes to the event log when alert is triggered. What I would like is to send an email to myself too. I managed to get a vbscript snippet that sends email using Cdonts. I then created a bat file that calls the script. On running the bat file I get the email! The alerts are triggered but the bat file is not run by the performance monitoring system -- I am wondering why?
