Today I was asked if there is any way of getting emailed if a particular Windows Event Log Event was generated on a server.
“Of course” I said, “SCOM can easily do that!”
“Oh we don’t have SCOM” was the reply.
“What? You don’t have SCOM? Why are you even talking to me?”.
Sadly this person was not in the position to use SCOM so he needed a different solution.
