Hello,

i have this problem. I set the alert in Performance when a hard-disk of my server is full.
I configured two options:

- log an entry in the application event log
- run this program

Run this program doesn't work. I tried each configuration but the program doesn't run.
The file sendmail.bat if i launch it manually it works correctly

In Run this program, why are you not pointing to your batch file i.e. to sendmail.bat.

You have at present pointed to cmd.exe

It may run only when you have met the requirement what it has been set during monitoring.

At same time have you get any log entries in your application event log ?, if no then the batch file can also be not running.

If you get entries in your application log then that batch file should run.

it won't start as it requires the command shell.

the correct way to call is "CMD.EXE /C D:\xxxx\sendmail\SENDMAIL.BAT"

I think you have not put the correct entry,

it is as below

"CMD.EXE /C D:\xxxx\sendmail\SENDMAIL.BAT"  

(There is space after CMD.EXE and also space after /C)
