Critical Event ids in Windows 2008 to be monitored

    Question

  • Hi,

    I am looking for all critical Event ids in Windows 2008 which needs to be monitored so that my environment/server will be in healthy condition. This is mainly for proactive monitoring so that i can configure tool to monitor these event ids and generate an alert whenever such event is generated.

    Request you to pls share the Critical event ids with respect to roles in Windows 2008 like

    ADDS,ADCS,MS Cluster,Load Balancing,DHCP,DNS,Windows 2008 OS,Disk,Services,Hyper-V etc.

    Appreciate the early replay and thanks in advance.

    Regards

    Mahesh

  • I would recommend that before you simply try to put together a list of Event IDs to manually look for in the Event Viewer, you may consider putting together a monitoring infrastructure such as Microsoft System Center Operations Manager, which would monitor all of the system events that occur on your servers.  In addition, depending on the roles the servers have installed, you apply the appropriate management packs which are already pre-defined for monitoring.  There is alot more to the product so, I would recommend that you at least take a look.

  • Hi,

    You can find a lot of Windows Server events from the Technet Library:

    Events and Errors(Applies To: Windows Server 2008)
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754424%28WS.10%29.aspx

    Events and Errors (Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2)
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd299434%28WS.10%29.aspx

    You need to collaborate with your colleges to determine which events you would like to monitor. If there is anything unclear, please let us know.

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Its very difficult to get/copy each and every event manually from above URLs, is there any white paper or one page where we can get all these critical & warning event lists?

     

    Regards

  • Hi Mahesh,

    I'm also looking for a list of critical & warning events list for our monitoring of Windows 2008 R2 Servers, did you find any online?   Could you share the top 15 or 20 that you found?

    Thanks,

    Rob
