I can't run a batch file as a notification



Hello all,

I'm trying to create a Notification Template so that every time my HTTP site doesn't respond, PRTG can restart IIS.

My batch file is simple

@echo on

When I configure and test by dropping a test page, the command runs successfully in prtg, but nothing happens on the server.

PRTG log;

07/18/2022 23:10:06
None Notification Template IISRESET - Notification Info
Status sending EXE:Ok (Sensor/Source/ID: 26072/26072/1)

Any light?

I've already tried scripting via Powershell, simple script tmb;

invoke-command -scriptblock {iisreset}

But the error was different;

Error sending EXE; Error1. MABR10: The term MABR10 is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program...

can you help me?

exe prtg template
