ServerSentinel

Enterprise Service 1

ServerSentinel frees your weekends by doing periodic Windows maintenance of your Windows, Exchange and Domino Servers.

ServerSentinel is a Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) that puts the responsibility on Maysoft to maintain your Windows servers. This frees up your nights and weekends and guarantees that all of your Windows servers are running the latest Windows security patches. In addition, ServerSentinel performs regular Domino housekeeping and rebooting.

ServerSentinel puts all of your servers on its own weekly, bi-weekly or monthly schedule for Windows Updates, Windows Security Patches, Domino compact of mail.box(es) and machine reboot (usually on a weekend night). We also shut off automatic Windows updates, as they don't play well with Domino when they reboot without correctly exiting Domino.

In-Sourced Server Maintenance = Free from Night and Weekends Work!

 

It is like having out-sourced servers right on-premise, and every server is always up-to-date.

Maintenance Tasks

  • Critical Windows Security patches
  • Windows Software Updates
  • Weekly Server Reboot
  • Email Report with Maintenance Summary
  • Setup time is 5 minutes per server.
  • We immediately run a Server Health Check
  • You receive an email report with results

 

How We Do It

From our ServerSentinel Management Console, we list tasks to run, server names and dates to run. Tasks can be scheduled for a specific date/time, or put into a daily, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly schedule. When that service window is opened, the server starts running the designated tasks. Upon completion, the results (success, failure or errors) are reported back to our ServerSentinel Management Console and an email is sent to the server administrator. 

Here is the ServerSentinel Management Console showing a variety of housekeeping and scheduled server update tasks for a group of 27 servers. We are doing maintenenance Monday through Thursday nights, so if there are any problems we can fix them Tuesday throught Friday with our full staff and your full staff. Weekend maintenance is for people, Weekday maintenance is for ServerSentinel.
