Coronavirus has create lot of problems worldwide. Most IT Pro has activate Business Continuity Plans and Disaster Recovery Plans to avoid downtimes and allow users to work from home.
From my experience this is totally different approach how the Disaster Recovery Plan works and to be honest i didn't include any scenario for virus in my Disaster Recovery Plan.
Until now it was totally in the science fiction.
But i was already prepare for any other catastrophic scenario which was include the plan to work from home.
Because i work from home for the last 11 days i realize that it is more difficult to manage your environment and more more difficult when you must expand your structure to allow users work from home safely.
I understand that this period to avoid disruptions and downtime is the most important thing.
For this reason i have create a small monitoring Tool for the DFS-Replication in the File Servers.
The tool is a powershell script which send email notifications in your email address from the Windows Event Logs related with the DFS-R.
The only thing that have to do is to create a Task Schedule with the Powershell script if you want to receive email notifications.
If you don't you can use it manual and run it whenever you want.
If you don't have any other monitoring solution for your DFS-R you can try it.
If you have any question or need help don't hesitate to send me an email in firstname.lastname@example.org
