3.4. Specify what should happen if a service fails

A service failure isn't always a major problem, but in some cases it can certainly be a cause for concern. In other cases it is a major problem, particularly with critical services on a server. Windows 2000 enables you to specify what action the system should take if a service does fail. For example, you can direct Windows 2000 to try to restart the service. If the service fails again, you might have Windows 2000 execute a program that emails a notification to you or pages you. In some cases you might even want the system to restart if a service fails.

Windows 2000 lets you specify an action to take for the first, second, and subsequent failures of the service In the preceding example, you might have Windows 2000 try to restart the service on the first failure, send you an email on the second, and restart the system on the third.
