In some situations you may want to execute a Visual Basic (VB) script when a network event occurs. The Edit Execute VB Script Action window is used to specify the name and complete path of the file that shall be executed when the specified alert is triggered or reset.

To configure alerts to execute a Visual Basic (VB) script:

1. Click VB Script.

2. Select an available VB Script Interpreter.

3. Specify a VB script to execute either by typing the complete path and name of the VB script into the VB Script to execute field or by clicking Browse to browse your folder structure and select the script.

4. Click Time of Day, and then enter the time period and select the days on which you want to execute the selected VB script.

5. Click Alert Escalation, and then check any of the following options, as appropriate for your alert:

  • To disable the script when the alert has been acknowledged, check Do not execute this Action if the Alert has been Acknowledged.
  • To execute the script repeatedly as long as the trigger condition exists, check Execute this Action repeatedly while the Alert is Triggered and then provide an appropriate action execution interval.
  • To delay script execution, check Delay the execution of this Action, and then provide an appropriate interval the alert engine should wait after the alert condition is met before the script executes.

6. If you are finished configuring your VB script execution action, click OK.
