    "Works great! And it can autostart to run unassisted!"

    July 16, 2010   |   By D_Elsner

    Version: EZHostCheck 1.01

    Pros

    Very easy to use.Very well done

    Cons

    Really just a wish list:
    1.Emailing requires access to an SMTP server that doesn't need authentication.
    2.Can't be minimized while running.

    Summary

    I've noticed that a lot of people were wishing that EZHostCheck could auto start.

    I wrote a VBScript (attached) to do just that. First make certain you get it working by manually starting it.
    Then just paste the following into Notepad. Save it as EZHostCheck.VBS into the same folder as EZHostCheck.Exe. Place a shortcut to it in the startup folder. Done.
    ===================================================================
    ' Scripted by D.L. Elsner 7/16/2010 with thanks to Jesse Breaker of Dark Chip Data
    ' First create the program environment
    Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

    ' Start up EZHostCheck
    WshShell.Run "EZHostCheck.exe"

    ' Give EZHostCheck time to load
    WScript.Sleep 500

    'Press the down arrow three times and Enter
    For i = 1 To 3
    WshShell.SendKeys "{DOWN}"
    Next
    WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}"

    ' Leave EZHostCheck open and running
    WScript.Sleep 500

    Updated on Jul 19, 2010

    I've found that the "WScript.Sleep" value of 500 under " ' Give EZHostCheck time to load" may not always be enough. On some machines with slow virus scanners I had to use a value of 5000!

    "Does what it says on the tin."

    June 29, 2009   |   By Bodestone

    Version: EZHostCheck 1.01

    Pros

    No nonsense monitor that is easy to set up and works well.

    Cons

    I can see no way to start it in monitoring mode so that it can be run at startup unassisted.

    "Excellent monitoring tool for all servers"

    January 26, 2009   |   By benzo11

    Version: EZHostCheck 1.01

    Pros

    The tool is made up of an easy to use GUI, believe me your kid can also monitor systems with this GUI. Easy to configure and very flexible in terms of how you want the tool to operate on your network.

    Cons

    The only thing picked up (not a problem), is that you can not test whether your email configurations are correct without simulating a server failure.

    Summary

    Great all round and specifically for my environment, filled a loophole with my current server power setup and monitoring system..

    "Sweet Simple and FREE!"

    April 15, 2008   |   By fairbanksf

    Version: EZHostCheck 1.01

    Pros

    This was super easy to setup. Runs like a champ. You can configure the frequency of the ping checks and notifications. Very easy to modify and import/export to a CSV file.

    Cons

    Nada!
