  • File Server-checks.ps1 — part of check-in [73993cf14a] at 2018-06-10 13:19:57 on branch trunk — A script to ping servers (gets the servers from a text file) & report whether they are online or offline, to check free disks space on all servers and to report on any services which are set to automatic startup but are in a stopped state. It puts all this on a nicely formatted excel sheet, then saves a copy as H:\dailychecks\checks_todaysdate.xls (so if I’m not in I can review it later). It also launches my web browser (my home page is set to my company’s site) so that I can check the site is up, and it imports the exchange modules as I intend eventually to add another sheet to check Exchange services, when I can figure out how to do it.
