Need a help with iisreset script




I'm trying to write a script that will trigger issreset on the target machine when the sensor goes down. Ideally it will pull the machine name from the sensor (variable) and invoke the iisreset with a service account creds. We can then add this to various sensors notifications. Any help and insight would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Arne

Thank you for you reply. I think i was over complicating it. I'll try to put iisreset in the executable notifications and use %host placeholder to lunch it remotely.

Thanks, Andrzej
