Hi guys,

I am trying to configure Remote management software called LogMeIn. The basic setup is that all our servers connect to LogMeIn Cenral site where they are managed by the technicians.

My current aim is to set up a number of generic alerts on LogMeIn with a view to prevent problems developing / customers having to raise calls etc.

Essentially I am looking for a generic set of common event IDs, Problems etc for SBS 2003,2008,2011 and Exchange 2003,2007. (Like a typical MOM alerts setup)

Can anyone recommend a good source or even list some key ones in ths thread please?

Thank you in advance,

M

let me start with saying that log me in is NOT the way to do what you want to do.
There are free tools designed especially for this:

i recommend nagios.

And there are a huge amount of things that could go wrong, but most monitoring tools can check this by default
(information store dropping/ping dropping/snmp to monitor disk usage/etc...)

Thanks for your suggestion, setasoujiro. Unfortunately, I am not in a position to change the software choice (logmein). Licences have been purchased and, for the purpose of this discussion, LogMeIn is staying. I will try nagiros out on our test servers as it does sound like a good monitoring tool, but for now, my original question remains.
