Script out all alerts

By Carolyn Richardson,

I found that no alerts had been added to any servers in a company I started work at, as there were many servers, I decided to set up one server with all the alerts I thought they should have and script the results to apply elsewhere. This script excludes any replication alerts so the resulting script can be used to add alerts on other servers.

You could always go a step further and run this in an SSIS package to apply across a whole environment.

Here's the result when I ran it:-

IF (EXISTS (SELECT name FROM msdb.dbo.sysalerts WHERE name = N'Error Number 824'))
 ---- Delete the alert with the same name.
  EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_delete_alert @name = N'Error Number 824'
BEGIN
EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_add_alert @name = N'Error Number 824', @message_id = 824 , @severity = 0 , @enabled = 1, @delay_between_responses = 60 , @include_event_description_in = 1, @category_name = N'[Uncategorized]'
END

IF (EXISTS (SELECT name FROM msdb.dbo.sysalerts WHERE name = N'Error Number 825: Miscellaneous System Information'))
 ---- Delete the alert with the same name.
  EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_delete_alert @name = N'Error Number 825: Miscellaneous System Information'
BEGIN
EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_add_alert @name = N'Error Number 825: Miscellaneous System Information', @message_id = 825 , @severity = 0 , @enabled = 1, @delay_between_responses = 60 , @include_event_description_in = 1, @category_name = N'[Uncategorized]'
END

IF (EXISTS (SELECT name FROM msdb.dbo.sysalerts WHERE name = N'Severity 016: Miscellaneous User Error'))
 ---- Delete the alert with the same name.
  EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_delete_alert @name = N'Severity 016: Miscellaneous User Error'
BEGIN
EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_add_alert @name = N'Severity 016: Miscellaneous User Error', @message_id = 0 , @severity = 16 , @enabled = 1, @delay_between_responses = 60 , @include_event_description_in = 1, @category_name = N'[Uncategorized]'
END

IF (EXISTS (SELECT name FROM msdb.dbo.sysalerts WHERE name = N'Severity 017: Insufficient Resources'))
 ---- Delete the alert with the same name.
  EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_delete_alert @name = N'Severity 017: Insufficient Resources'
BEGIN
EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_add_alert @name = N'Severity 017: Insufficient Resources', @message_id = 0 , @severity = 17 , @enabled = 1, @delay_between_responses = 60 , @include_event_description_in = 1, @category_name = N'[Uncategorized]'
END

IF (EXISTS (SELECT name FROM msdb.dbo.sysalerts WHERE name = N'Severity 018: NonFatal Internal Error'))
 ---- Delete the alert with the same name.
  EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_delete_alert @name = N'Severity 018: NonFatal Internal Error'
BEGIN
EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_add_alert @name = N'Severity 018: NonFatal Internal Error', @message_id = 0 , @severity = 18 , @enabled = 1, @delay_between_responses = 60 , @include_event_description_in = 1, @category_name = N'[Uncategorized]'
END

IF (EXISTS (SELECT name FROM msdb.dbo.sysalerts WHERE name = N'Severity 019: Fatal Error in Resource'))
 ---- Delete the alert with the same name.
  EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_delete_alert @name = N'Severity 019: Fatal Error in Resource'
BEGIN
EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_add_alert @name = N'Severity 019: Fatal Error in Resource', @message_id = 0 , @severity = 19 , @enabled = 1, @delay_between_responses = 60 , @include_event_description_in = 1, @category_name = N'[Uncategorized]'
END

IF (EXISTS (SELECT name FROM msdb.dbo.sysalerts WHERE name = N'Severity 020: Fatal Error in current Proccess'))
 ---- Delete the alert with the same name.
  EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_delete_alert @name = N'Severity 020: Fatal Error in current Proccess'

END

IF (EXISTS (SELECT name FROM msdb.dbo.sysalerts WHERE name = N'Severity 022: Fatal Error: Table Integrity Suspect'))
 ---- Delete the alert with the same name.
  EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_delete_alert @name = N'Severity 022: Fatal Error: Table Integrity Suspect'
BEGIN
