GFIMAX can give it back to you and I will show you how easy it is to add.
First open up your GFI MAX Dashboard and select the server you wish to know about
Click the Checks button
Next click Add 247 Check
Now click Event Log Check (note all the other options for future reference)
An empty form will appear to let us set our criteria
Note all of the options available just for this one type of check, this is a very powerful tool
Lets name it ” – Server Rebooted” without the quotes.
That is a blank space a hyphen and another blank space before the Server Rebooted
It will make sense later when you see it in the console, it just makes it a bit clearer to read
Set the event log to query to System
Set Alert when to Log Contains
Set Event ID to 6005
Select Information for the Event Type
Set event source to EventLog
Check the message contains string and set it to started
Now we have to give it a little time to sync the changes to the server
Note currently it says Awaiting Synchronization in the status view
Once the server syncs to MAX the next time the server should reboot
you will get a message in you inbox like this
And if you go back to the GFIMAX Dashboard you will also see it shows up there as well
Well that is all there is to it .
I hope you realize this is just one of the hundreds of things MAX can tell you about on you servers and workstations
