Windows SBS includes a large set of alerts. To view the alerts, click Network in the Windows SBS Console and then select Computers. In the Tasks pane, click View Notification Settings.

In the Notification Settings dialog box, there are three pages of notifications to choose from.

1. Alerts for Services

On the Services page, shown in Figure 1, you’ll find a list of services with their startup type.

Figure 1. Setting notifications for services

As you can see, many of the services are already marked for notification if the service stops. Select additional services for notification, or remove the ones you don’t care about. When a selected service stops, an alert is sent to the Home page of Windows SBS Console and will also appear on any subsequently generated Summary or Detailed report that includes other alerts, as shown in Figure 2.


Click E-Mail Address in the Notification Settings dialog box, and specify an email address to receive notifications. To send to multiple email addresses, separate them using a semicolon.

2. Performance Counter Alert

All the other alerts in this section are interesting and occasionally very useful, but the alert you’ll be grateful for on a regular basis is the one for low disk space.

On the Performance Counter page of the Notification Settings dialog box, Percent Free Disk Space is selected by default with a threshold set to five percent. (You can clear the check box to remove the notification, though we’d be hard-pressed to understand why anyone would do so.)

To change the threshold for the notification, highlight Percent Free Disk Space and then click Edit. In the Edit box, shown in Figure 3, enter a threshold for notification. Click OK when finished.

3. Event Log Error Alerts

On the Event Log Errors page shown in Figure 4, a large number of potential event log errors are listed.

Select or clear errors according to your needs. Click OK when finished.


Click E-Mail Address, and specify an email address to receive notifications. To send to multiple email addresses, use a semicolon to separate addresses.
