Hello all!

I have this scenario, I want to display a popup message to a windows host
when an event goes critical. I have already a poweshell script that
produces the message. Is there a way to trigger the execution of this
script for example using the check_mk agent?

Thank you all!!

You can send Windows popup messages ("net send") from Linux via
smbclient: smbclient -M hostname "Message"

This can be used in a notification plugin.

Thank you for your suggestion!

I'm trying to do that but whatever combination of the command I get the
following output..

root@:~# smbclient -M \10.0.1.101\ "Message" -A auth
WARNING: The "syslog" option is deprecated
Connection to 10.0.1.101 Message failed. Error NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL

Does the Windows machine accept these messages?

Is this the same method you use with your PowerShell script?
