Have scheduled some tasks to run on Win 2000 everyday at regular intervals.
I just want to know if there is any way for me to get an Email Notification when the task fails to run.
All I find is "Notify me of missed tasks" in the Advanced Menu on the scheduled tasks screen. This is not of much use to me because I am not sitting closer to the Machine where I set the scheduled tasks. I would prefer to get an email instead.
Please help me out.
There's a fairly active W2K forum here [winnetmag.com], perhaps you'd be willing to try your question there. Just don't forget to stop back in and see us!!! :) :)
If your process allows it, drop a file at the end of it... or encapsulate the event within a batch file, and let the batch file drop the file. something like:
process1.bat or .cmd
rem event one
systime > process1.ok
and so on...
Then after each process, you can run an other batch file that looks to see if the file exists, and if it does NOT exists sends you a message using sendmail...
Hey... you didn't say it had to be pretty...
