A while back I mentioned Windows uptime, and we actually put it to use today. I alerted our server admin to one of our IIS servers that had puked on us. He usually kicks it and it gets going again. This time no good. So, as I often suggest when Windows is involved, I say “reboot?” and he is reluctant, but says “sure” but not before wondering about uptime. So I ran the uptime.pl script for Windows, and lo and behold, it had this to say: up 49 days 16:50 (since Wed Aug 27 22:33:24 2003)
Wow! Alert the media! Call those Guiness folks! I did mention this was a Windows server, right?
Oh BTW, the reboot solved whatever was ailing the poor box.
