Unix Tip #4513- July 20, 2013

DID IT REBOOT?


If you believe your users
like to reboot their systems,
here is a way you will be
able to detect it.


#!/bin/ksh
#
# Boot Notification Script
# /etc/rc2.d/S99notify - Sends e-mail notification to the
administrators
# when the system is booted.
#

#*****************************************************************

PATH=/usr/sbin:/usr/bin

DATE="`date`"

SRVNM=`uname -n`

# The next variable can be set for multiple addresses
# (i.e. jsmith@yahoo.com,jsmith@hotmail.com)
MAILADD=monitor

mail $MAILADD < From: $0
To: $MAILADD
Subject: Boot of $SRVNM

$DATE

$SRVNM has booted up.

If this is news to you, please investigate.
