Solved how to get uptime of win servers remotely

April 5, 2011 at 02:01:42
Specs: Windows XP

I have ten win servers in one subnet, and I need to figure out time to time when they were last time rebooted.
My Q: is it possible to figure out remotely via cmd line?
Currently I log to each server and check it but it seems to be pretty unconfortable.
Any ideas?

What version of Server is running on the servers? If it's 2008, then you can attach tasks to events in the event log. So you could email yourself everytime the event 6013 occurs in the System Log. This event records the uptime in seconds and occurs once a day (at noon on my system).

Unfortunately, it's not quite so automatic on earlier versions which don't have the "attach task to event" option. What I used to do was to create a MMC on my workstation containing Event Viewers for each server. You could create a custom view on each server showing just 6013 events. Such a multi-server Event Viewer is useful for many purposes other than your specific one.

You could easily write a small program to automate this sort of thing, but I'm guessing you want to work with the existing tools.

Edit: Just realized that, as this is in the 2003 forum, you must be running 2003. In that case I think you need to look at my second suggestion.

Um. You don't need to install any new utilities with the method I suggested; just create a custom MMC console. Of course, you need Administrator access to all the computers to do this, but if you don't have that you're not going to get access anyway.
