  • Testing services to show in a "status" web page

    I'm currently looking for a way to test services on a Win2k3 box (eg. if Exchange is up & running, IIS service is running, etc) in order to ultimately display on a basic web status page.

    Putting aside the status page aspect for the moment - what options are available for checking the status of a service on a remote Win2k3 server?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Hows your Linux skills?

    I used it in a test lab once and it works very well (Once configured )

    Good Luck

      just to throw out a few ideas, have you looked at SNMP?
      There is some more tips here on using it on Windows.

      There are many programs which will build on/manage SNMP and produce a Web interface, Netcrunch is one I've used (not configured though) and it was very handy. If I can get something similiar set up at my current workplace I'd be very happy. There are other which work similarly, Nessus being another I can think off. There are more like this out there.

      There is another program I've used called The Dude. Which seems to be a network scanner from what little I've layed with it.
