Tips to configure system failure and recovery options on Windows®
What are the different things that are to be taken into account while configuring system failure and recovery options in Windows?
Windows-based Pcs may sometimes encounter a system failure. It could be caused due to several issues. One reason is hardware failure or some software issues in the system. As the system fails, the Windows system could freeze or reboot automatically. It might also not function at all. A Windows system, however, includes a number of recovery options included in it to address such failure. It has several options like send an administrative alert which will notify administrator when the system fails. The automatic restart will restart the system automatically as a system failure occurs to prevent further complications. The Write an event to the System log will record event information in the System log.
Here are ways to configure system failure and recovery options on Windows:
- Using a graphical user interface
- Using the command-line interface
- Using wmic utility
Using a graphical user interface
You can configure system failure and recovery options on Windows using the graphical user interface. To do this, you need to open the 'Control Panel' of the system from the Start Menu. Then click the 'System applet'. It will open the System Properties window and you need to select the 'Advanced' tab. Next step is to click the 'Settings' button under the Startup and Recovery label. You will find all system failure options located under the newly displayed System Failure heading. You can modify the settings as per your wish.
Using the command-line interface
You can use the command-line interface to configure system failure and recovery options on Windows. The system failure and recovery options can be found in the system registry. You need to open up the 'Run' prompt from the Start menu of the system and type in ‘regedit’ in the text box and press the 'Enter' key. It will bring up the System registry and you need to navigate to the system Crash Control sub key under the 'HKLM' tab.
If you are using the Windows Server 2003 system, you can use the wmic utility to view system failure and recovery options. The wmic or Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line refers to a command-line and scripting interface which is built in to simplify the use of Windows Management Instrumentation. You can then change the settings by the use of 'reg add' command or the 'wmic' command. You can then change the value of these keys and can set them to true or false or 0 or 1 etc.
