Click the Conifigure events link in the MCS administration menu
Enter a name for the new event and click the create button
Customize the event
Choose "When a Satellite fails to connect" from the drop down menu at the top
Optional: Select an event to trigger. If no event is selected MCS will log it in the events database, which can be accessed from the MCS main menu.
Choose which Satellites to target. Satellites can be targetted as a whole, by group, or by text match.
Choose how often to check for disconnected Satellites. A Satellite is determined to be disconnected if it has not made contact within 5 minutes. So, if 15 minutes was chosen here then every 15 minutes MCS would trigger the event for matched Satellites that have been out of contact for more than 5 minutes.
This section will be filled with options that depend on what actions were selected. For example, if SQL export was chosen then a drop down list box will appear containing all the SQL profiles currently set up in MCS.
Set an event level. This is only used when logging the event in MCS.
