This topic provides information about configuring the PATROL for Windows Servers built-in recovery actions, which are corrective actions taken by PATROL when a parameter reaches a set value or is in a warning or alarm state.
For the sake of discussion, the recovery actions that you define in the KM using the PATROL console are referred to as PATROL native recovery actions. PATROL native recovery actions are different from PATROL KM for Event Management recovery actions; this difference is described as follows:
By default, PATROL for Microsoft Windows Servers provides the following built-in recovery actions that are associated with the specified parameter:
