Out of Drive Space

This VMWare 4.1 VIRTUAL server is a microsoft server enterprise 2008 .  A database server.  It has 6 drives.
C:\OS
E:\Data
F:\Temp
S:\Database
T:\Database2
U:\Logs

the S: drive got full and our database shut down.  
I would like to monitor not only this servers's HD capacity but others.  Any suggestions how?

Hi,

You can configure a soft quote on the disks and then tell it to email you when it hits that quota. See the following links for further reading:

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

NEW QUESTION.  I have What's Up Gold.  and I looked at the active monitor list and it didnt have any disk alerts options so i thougth it cant be configured to do so.  but in the permormance monitor there is a feature where i can setup an alert when a disk gets full.  It requires SNMP service to be turned on the server.  I did a test on a 2003 server and it seems to work.  On a 2008 server, how do i turn on the SNMP service?
