"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..
