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.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

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:
http://sbs.codeplex.com/
There is also an MSDN site that outlines how to build your own:

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