VB Script: ping servers and send notification if one of them is down

Last Modified: 2016-10-28
Hello experts,

I have multiple servers and I would like through  VB script to check connectivity of each servers and send a notification e-mail if one of the server is down.

if possible (the priority is test connectivity) I would like to send a notification e-mail if Hard disk usage of one of the server is >%60

I have the notification script so I just need to include the test connectivity

' Send by connecting to port 25 of the SMTP server.
Dim iMsg 
Dim iConf 
Dim Flds 
Dim strHTML

Const cdoSendUsingPort = 2

set iMsg = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
set iConf = CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")

Set Flds = iConf.Fields

' Set the CDOSYS configuration fields to use port 25 on the SMTP server.

With Flds
    .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = cdoSendUsingPort
    'ToDo: Enter name or IP address of remote SMTP server.
    .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = "" 
    .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpconnectiontimeout") = 10
End With

' Build HTML for message body.
strHTML = "<HTML>"
strHTML = strHTML & "<HEAD>"
strHTML = strHTML & "<BODY>"
strHTML = strHTML & "<p>-----This message has been sent automatically-----<p>"
strHTML = strHTML & "<p>Regards,</p>"
strHTML = strHTML & "</BODY>"
strHTML = strHTML & "</HTML>"

' Apply the settings to the message.
With iMsg
    Set .Configuration = iConf
    .To = "" 'ToDo: Enter a valid email address.
    .From = "" 'ToDo: Enter a valid email address.
    .Subject = ""
    .HTMLBody = strHTML
    .AddAttachment "c:\"
End With

' Clean up variables.
Set iMsg = Nothing
Set iConf = Nothing
Set Flds = Nothing
