Unexpected Shutdown Comments

We've all seen the following prompt after servers have "unexpectedly shutdown"



This is the summary of the “unexpected shutdown” comments left on our lab servers and the script I used to get them (which I'm sure could use some cleaning up/optimization). If your engineers are anything like us, I'm sure you'll find some interesting comments in your logs as well.

=========================================================================
$strCategory = "computer"

$objDomain = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry

$objSearcher = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher
$objSearcher.SearchRoot = $objDomain
$objSearcher.Filter = ("(objectCategory=$strCategory)")

$colProplist = "name"
foreach ($i in $colPropList){$objSearcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add($i)}

$colResults = $objSearcher.FindAll()

foreach ($objResult in $colResults)
{$objComputer = $objResult.Properties

$objComputer.name
$SysEvent = new-object system.diagnostics.eventlog("system", $objComputer.name)
$SysEvent.entries | ?{ $_.eventid -match "1076" } | %{$_.Message.Split("`r`n")[16]}
}

I realize this is ancient history... But all of those comments sound as if they came out of your mind... You're the only one that reboots that server aren't you...
