Application Popup - 26


Description »
Application popup: Message from sAMAccountName - 19/01/2012 12:53 : Please logoff!  I need to reboot this server!
Data formatted as » None

Event ID 26 from application popup is logged when somebody sends a message via terminal services. Often, these will be in the form of an administrator asking users to logoff before they get kicked off - or sometimes, when two engineers are working on the same server at the same time, they'll use this method to ask each other what they're doing.

These messages can be sent using the msg.exe utility. For example, running msg.exe bob /SERVER:CITRIX04 Logoff now! will send a message to user "bob" logged in to server CITRIX04, telling him to logoff, and will cause the message to be logged under this event ID.
