By setting up an action profile (that tells Uptime Infrastructure Monitor how to deal with problems on a monitored system), Uptime Infrastructure Monitor can automatically restart a service on a Windows server when that service goes down.
To configure Uptime Infrastructure Monitor to restart a Windows service:
For example, to restart the service that creates a network connection, enter
Remote Access Connection Manager in this field.
The following image illustrates the action profile defined above:
|The Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Agent Password will need to be set on the agent server using the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Agent Admin Console.|
After the action profile is created, apply it to a Windows Service Check monitor by selecting the name of the profile from the Action Profile dropdown list in the monitor definition window. Ensure that the service name specified in the monitor matches the one in the action profile.
For more information on configuring a Windows Service Check monitor, refer to the Windows Service Check section in the Microsoft Windows Monitors chapter of the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor User Guide.
