WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Running a batch file directly on the server executes a PowerShell script as expected, but when the batch file is executed through the Advanced Alerts, it states that it executed and resulting in a false positive.


  • All NPM versions 
  • Windows Server 2008 and 2012


Run the PowerShell script with elevated privilege and set execution policy to bypass.
