My apologies if this has already been posted but I couldn't find it.
I have a monitor that informs me when my crappy DVR software stops running. At this point it just emails me and then I need to remote in to re-open the program manually. Unfortunately, the software is not running as a service so I can't just have it set to restart the service. How do I trigger the alert to open the application for me when an alert is triggered?
I presume by "monitoring" you mean you have a monitor sets that alerts you when the DVR Process ( ie Process NOT Service ) stops ?
So create a script that executes the required command to start the application then go to "Assign Monitoring" and instead of just selecting the Send Email option , select run script as well and pick the script you just created that starts the DVR App
Seems to me the best thing to do would be to write an Agent Procedure to start the software, then have your alarm fire off that Procedure.
Thanks Paul that was what I was looking for. I had forgotten where I had set the monitor set to email me.
