I run a script everytime my Windows 2003 Servers start that run bginfo and puts the information on the desktop.

Works great on Windows 2003 and Windows 2008 Servers.

I would like to add a field to the display to show the reason for the last shutdown.

Example I had a Power outage today and my UPS's units keep the servers up but shutdown after a long outage. The all shutdown normally except for one. When that one came back online it presented me with a reason for shutdown screen where I entered trouble number and description.

Would like that info to be displayed using bginfo.

Any one have a script that can do this?
