Free Kaseya Script – Run CHKDSK And Repair
Here is another free script from Cubert’s Dwelling, An Agent procedure that will run a CHKDSK in read only mode. Parse the output and run a chkdsk /F if it meets the criteria set forth in the script. It then emails an alert with the scan results to a email address provided before it uploads a copy of the scan to the get file for storage and review. Finally it updates 2 custom fields in the system info table with a brief result and the last run time. If it finds the disk healthy it will report as such if not it will report one of several error types.
You will need to unzip the script and import it into Kaseya. Once imported edit the script and find the 2 places it email out and update the email address(es), Then you will need to add the 2 custom fields into your System-info table.
To add the custom fields:
1# Open Kaseya and go to [Audit] – [View Individual Data] – [System Information] and select the button marked [New Custom Field]
2# The next box that pops up will create a new field, We will need to add 2 fields the first is CheckDisk Status and it will be a type String and Check Disk Updated with a type String.
Now run your disk check and see what it shows. If it meets with the right disk errors, a repair is sent to the system and a email to you to reboot system when you can so the repair can complete. You can add another execute command under where we call the chkdsk /F with a shutdown -r -t 3 and that will cause the system to reboot its self after issuing the fix cmd. This is great for servers where your scheduling the disk scans during maintenance cycles but not so good with workstations where user gets booted up then a scan runs that then reboots the system will only inflame your users. So be mindful of how you use a shutdown cmd.
