Does anyone have a script that will monitor a server (probably best via a ping) and should the ping fail it creates an event for it?

I have a need to monitor the availability of a server and should that server go offline for what ever reason that a event be created so I can keep track of it.  Any help would be most welcome :)

Thanks

ideally looking for a Windows based script, I have an event monitoring solution in place hence why I would ideally like an event to be created in Windows events to be able to pick these up.

Hi,

You can try this powershell script. I believe only you need to know the status of the server whether it's UP or Down? if so, this will be best option for you. Unfortunately I haven't tested this earlier.

Hope this works.
