  • Hi,

    There are many books available that cover PowerShell, VBScript, and JavaScript. A good online book that covers IT systems management from a VBScript perspective is the Microsoft Windows 2000 Scripting Guide.

    For monitoring systems, search the web for monitoring tools and find one that works for you. This way you can install a product and not need to write a script at all.

  • Hi,

    This forum is for asking specific questions. Asking others to design and write a custom solution is not the purpose of this forum. There is, however, a script request page:

    As with this forum, there is not a guarantee that someone will read your script request and take the time to do it for you.

    If this is time sensitive, I would recommend looking into commercially supported monitoring products.
