Monitoring and Responding to Windows Intune Alerts

by David Overton | February 2012 | Enterprise Articles Microsoft

In this article by David Overton, author of Microsoft Windows Intune 2.0: Quickstart Administration, we will examine the real-time nature of PC management as we explore the alerts that Windows Intune raises which require action on our part, exploring how we both monitor and respond to them.

We can have configure computers to minimize situations where alerts will be raised through good practices of updates, firewall, and anti-malware management. However, problems will still arise with users' computers, whether this is a request for assistance, a computer that will not boot, or some other warning picked up by Windows Intune. These need to be categorized and responded to in a timely manner. Some can be closed and filed depending on circumstances, while others require a visit to the computer itself with other tools to further diagnose and resolve.

In this article, we will discuss this in the following sections:

  • General Windows Intune alerts
  • Malware alerts
