This week i found the report-events Powershell script (see figure 1). The script is made by Jeffrey Hicks. It generates a nice HTML file with errors and warnings from the Windows eventlog.
figure 1. Output reports-event script
You can specify multiple servers in a text file, select how many hours from the current time to look in the eventlog and e-mail the HTML file after generation.
The following syntax can be used:
get-content c:\script\servers.txt, text file containing the server names
– report c:\script\eventlog.html, name of the HTML file
| c:\scripts\report-event.ps1, call the actually script
–hours 48, hours to report from the curren time
–smtp mail.beerens.nl. SMTP server to sent the HTML rapport
–sendto email@example.com, To address
–from firstname.lastname@example.org . from address
Schedule this script to run frequently to watch your eventlogs!
