Keeping track of down Package Servers can be a challenge, especially in a large global environment such as what I work with on a daily basis.  Complicate this by the fact that over 70% of our total PSes are running on standard WinXP desktop PCs at rural sites and you have a lot of work on your hands!  So, I came up with the attached Notification Policy that emails in the case where a PS hasn't updated configuration in more than 4 hours (we use an hourly configuration request for our PSes).  The number can be changed easily in the "Edit Parameters" section of the Notification Policy.

Anything for 7.1 or will this work with that as well?

Hi Jason,
I highly doubt it would work as-is, but the same can be accomplished with an Automation Policy (i think that's the right term). I will be re-creating this for 7.1 as soon as I figure out how, and will post it when complete and link it from this Download.

Thanks,
Kyle

Still have this on my to-do list...run into an issue now where the Evt_NS_Client_Config_Request table doesn't have any entries in it except for hte SMP and two initial Site Servers...?
