Recommended Posts

Is there a way to make windows server 2016 to email me or something to tell me when it rebooted. And/Or open up programs in a certain order? I don't ever know when it reboots until I login to it or try to access files.

use pulseway. Its one of LTTs sponsors and its dose what you want it to. Its free if you use it with only 3 server/computers.

I'm gonna go find my own tech support...

$SmtpFrom = "YourServer <YourServer@domain.tld>"
$SmtpRecipient = "Lastname, Firstname <YourMailAddress@domain.tld>"
$SmtpServer = "your.mail.server"
$SmtpPort = 587
$SmtpSubject = "Reboot has occured"
$SmtpBody = "The machine " + $env:computername + " has rebooted."

Send-MailMessage -From $SmtpFrom -To $SmtpRecipient -SmtpServer $SmtpServer -Subject $SmtpSubject -Body $SmtpBody -Port $SmtpPort -encoding ([System.Text.Encoding]::UTF8)

Save as a .ps1, put it somewhere on the server, create a new task schedular task to run this upon boot
