I have an .exe client that I can use in order to send SMS with my SMS server.
I've made a simple batch file - test.bat
on the batch file I've wrote 2 lines -
-rPHONENUMBER -sALERT -iSYSLOG -sTest Test msg.exe Administrator Hi1
when I run the batch file - it works , I'm seeing a message on the screen and I'm getting an SMS.
I've got the file under C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin\scripts\
I've also go the snsclient.exe & DLLs to the same folder.
I've ran the batch file - and it works.
Over Splunk - under the "run script" I wrote - test.bat
when the alert is triggering I'm getting an email & I'm getting the message on the screen - which means the msg.exe is working - which means that it does run the .bat file !
yet - the bat file for some reason doesn't run the .exe file when the splunk is running the .bat file.
when I'm running the bat file - it does work.
please help !
there is only 1 user over the Windows 2008 R2 Server which is Administrator , the splunk service is running under this service.
Use error logging in the bat file or put the bat file in someother location and try to trigger with absolute path.
thanks for your help !
I have modified to have the full location and changed to it be c:\
and it works !
thanks a lot for your help !
I do have another question -
in order to send the SMS I need to use the following context -
C:\snsClient.exe -z:1234 -r -sALERT -iSYSLOG -s''
I've tried to write on the bat file the follows -
C:\snsClient.exe -z184.108.40.206:1234 -r055555555 -sALERT -iSYSLOG -s
and then I wrote on the the alert script over splunk the follows -
I've also tried test.bat SMS TEST
and it doesn't work.
any idea how can I use it to work ?
I would like have in between the ` ` the raw data.
i am not able to get the complete details as the symbols got omitted in your comment. But what i can understand is you want to include the alert subject in your SMS !? You can take advantage of the parameters which will supply you the values directly. Don't mention the $alert variable while mentioning the script file in the alert set up page. Please see the below argument values.
Arg Environment Variable Value 0 SPLUNK_ARG_0 Script name` 1 SPLUNK_ARG_1 Number of events returned 2 SPLUNK_ARG_2 Search terms 3 SPLUNK_ARG_3 Fully qualified query string 4 SPLUNK_ARG_4 Name of report 5 SPLUNK_ARG_5 Trigger reason. For example, "The number of events was greater than 1." 6 SPLUNK_ARG_6 Browser URL to view the report. 7 SPLUNK_ARG_7 Not used for historical reasons. 8 SPLUNK_ARG_8 File in which the results for the search are stored. Contains raw results.
