reminder notifications for down machines

Is there a way to set up SIM to send additional reminder pages for a machine that is down?
We currently get paged for for down systems from the hardware status polling, but it only pages once. We have a large number of servers and if we're doing a maintenance we may miss a server that wasn't turned back on.

Re: reminder notifications for down machines

Well, one way to do it would be to create a collection that contained the systems you wanted to include. For example, the collection Critical Systems could be used as the source. You then could create a batch file calling the mxquery utility to use that collection and filter out everything except for the names of the devices, as in

mxquery -e "critical systems" | findstr "^DeviceName"

That output could be written to a file and then your pager application or a command line email utility could be used to send it along. You could use the Windows 'AT' command to schedule it to run with an appropriate frequency.

Re: reminder notifications for down machines

There's no way to do this in the GUI? I am not a scripts person at all.

Besides, with over 600 servers and almost daily changes it's impossible to create an accurate collection. We filter notification (via smtp) by IP subnets and naming convention.
