This project is read-only.
Take the contents of shutdown.xml and place it in
%programfiles%\Windows Small Business Server\Data\Monitoring\ExternalAlerts folder on the SBS 2008 server. (the 64bit subdirectory not the 32 bit one). Then wait a bit of time and you'll see it sent out to you.

The XML file contains the following code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<AlertDefinition ID="896e6561-b29d-42b5-b349-a87460c8556f" Default="1" Title="Unexpected Shut down" Source="Server">

The instructions to build a custom alert are pretty simple. First you need to generate a custom GUID. An easy way to do this is to use, to do so. Then place that GUID in that AlertDefinition ID area shown, Default=1 means that it will be default checked, Define the Title of the event, and the Source. Then find the Path and Provider and EventID (the SDK instructions tell you how ) and ensure that you place the </AlertDefinition> and </AlertDefinitions> to close the code.
