Hi Guys,

I need to set up a number of generic alerts on the companys' servers 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)

Many thanks,

m

You can attach tasks to events in Windows Server 2008. The only problem is that the event has to exist in the event log, so it cannot be used as a preventive measure if it has never happened before.

To Run a Task in Response to a Given Event
    Start Event Viewer.
      In the console tree, navigate to the log that contains the event you want to associate with a task.
      Right-click the event and select Attach Task to This Event.
      Perform each step presented by the Create Basic Task Wizard.

Additional Considerations
    You cannot assign a task to an event in a saved log.
    You cannot assign a task to an event in an analytic or debug log.

Others have developed custom alerts for common failures on SBS using XML. There is a collection at the following site which may be of help to you:

There is also an MSDN site that outlines how to build your own:

Would the standard SBS alerts not be enough for you. ?
