Hi All,

How can we DBAs get alerts when SQL resources don't come online after a cluster failover ?
Can we set up this alerts ourselves ? Please advise.

Thanks in advance,
Joy.

Which of the resources are you talking about? i.e. just the SQL Services or more than that?

For example if the cluster failed over, SQL server and the Agent starts but there is issues with specific shared storage drives not coming online?

Three options you could consider is something like:

1. SCOM http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System_Center_Operations_Manager
2. SPLUNK http://www.splunk.com/
3. Using a powershell script to monitor the event logs \ cluster management ran via windows scheduler.

The first two are monitoring products and you have to pay for them, the last is free but you will need to design the code yourself.

Hi Thanks.

I was talking about only SQL Server services. Yes, I stumbled upon PowerShell script.
Anyone has any such script already running by any chance ?


Thanks again.
Smith.

Can you share the PoSH script you stumbled upon? Thanks.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink
