Application that will email text when a server goes offline
Posted on 2012-04-11
I have a server that we moved to a virtual box . When it was on the physical server every night at some point . It loses connectivity and though I can remote into it from another workstation on the network . I figure this works because netbios name allows remote desktop even though the server is off the Internet .
When I reboot the server Internet returns its a server 2003 which we are going to upgrade very soon.
Until I get this issue resolved I need some application that will alert me when it goes offline so I can go remote into the VMware server and restart the vmmachine.
I cant figure out for the life of me how there is no Internet on the box but I can remote into the server from another workstation . I do a renew release and no go only way to get it back up on the network is reboot
