I currently run a PING sanity check test (batch file with result file) on over 80 servers in 4 environment.
But, even if we "ping" ok 100% of the servers, it doesn't mean that the machine are working properly. We had a couple of instances where a server was in a reboot limbo, but was pinging OK.
My question is:
First, I would create a Windows Test Account, or use my own admin account (ie: domain/user.test + password).
Is there a way for me to, lets say in the PRE-PROD environment, to log in on a machine, and from there, run a script of some sort, that would "test" and log in/log out of the 36 machines we have in PRE-PROD??? Also, maybe create and output file with results, like connected/logged out - OK....
Something like this?! I have scripting knowledge and created the ping test files, but really google out the web, and didn't find anything on this subject, so I need your help please!!
