Add an entry to the Windows Event Log either on the SolarWinds Orion server or on a monitored remote server later investigation.

  1. When editing or adding an alert, click Add Action in the Trigger or Reset Action section of the Alert Wizard.
  2. Select the Windows Event Log option, then click Configure Action.
  3. Under Event Log Settings, enter the message you want logged.
  4. Schedule the action by selecting Time of Day > Use special Time of Day schedule for this action. This schedule only applies to the alert action you are editing.

    This is often used to prevent an action from occurring during specific windows.

  5. Select how frequently this action occurs for each triggered alert in Execution Settings.

  6. Click Add Action.

The action is added to the trigger or reset action list, and you can test the action using the Simulate button. When the trigger or reset conditions of the alert are met, the alert message is added to the Windows Event log.
