Alert on failed windows login

Hi,

Can I alert Network administrator if login to windows server (Remote or physical) fails for more than 3 times ?

Thanks !

You could attach an event to email to the event in the windows event viewer, but you'd get it every time the login failed.  If it had to be three, you can attach a script that would count the recent login attempts instead of sending an email, then have it send the email.

This would work with any windows server.

Thanks Dankenn ! I have Windows Server 2003. I went to Computer Management > Event Viewer and then System/Application/Security...  And when I right click on any event, I only get Refresh and Properties option. How do I attach event ? You mean like a WMI script to count number of login attempts ?

PS - Could you please attach jpeg or gif file, I do not have photoshop.

In that case, I think that the best way would be something like this, but I've never done it myself.

PS- here is the image as jpg.  Also bmp should be able to be opened in MS Paint.

Excellent article. I wonder if I do not search with right keywords or these pages are not rated high in search engines.

Thanks a lot !
