    Emailing on Reboot

    Rookie

      Please excuse my ignorance if this is an obvious question.

       

      I need to create an alerting rule that will email me whenever a machine comes back up from a reboot.  I've reinstalled the Server Manager Agent to make sure I've got the absolute latest version of all files installed, but I can't find a "Reboot" task anywhere in the Alerts list under 8.8 SP2a.

       

      One of the suggestions in a similar thread - http://community.landesk.com/support/message/2481#2481 was to rely on IPMI for reporting if the machine is rebooted, but some of our hardware has a buggy IPMI firmware, so that's not 100% reliable.
