How to set up alert notification on Server outages
Posted on 2010-11-30
I have a small production server pool. This weekend the AC exhaust duct came loose and pumped the whole room full of hot air as well as cool air. The result was a room at 120 degrees and all the severs shutting down on temp. Unfortunately, I was unaware of the problem until the next day. All servers are HP servers. Is there a way for the severs to send a text or email if it senses a fault (like this temp). I have seen some pretty intimidating scripts that can do this, but I am looking for something a little more on the novice side.
