I have MBM 5 and SHUTDNNOW. Is there a way to make it shut down faster than 10 seconds in the event a critical temp is reached? I have tried to set it less than 10 seconds and it won't go any lower that I have found. A lot can happen in 10 seconds.

Thanks,

I can't remmeber the shutdown program I used with MBM but it shut down so fast it caused some sort of registry error that I never recovered from. I had to format the whole drive. Unfortunatley this happened while I was testing the system and not during an actual meltdown.

Thanks,

if you are running winNT/2000 you can install the Resource kit and it comes with a remote shutdown tool. You can create a batch file with the command
"shutdown /L /T:0" That tells it to shutdown the local machine(/L) with a delay of 0 seconds(/T:0).
You can also add the /R for reboot, and the /C to force apps to close. After all switches you can add text in double quotes to be displayed as you are being shutdown...

Oh yea, "shutdown /A" aborts the shutdown.

Just another way to accomplish the same thing...
