What is Administrative Alert

Administrative Alert is a dialog box that displays on Microsoft Windows NT to notify selected users and computers of problems or warnings. Alerts are generated by the Windows NT Alerter service.

Administrative alerts can be displayed when problems with security, access, sessions, directory replication, and printing occur, or when a server is shut down by an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) device.

You can configure which specific users or computers will receive administrative alerts by using Server Manager. If you configured alerts to be sent to a specific computer but they are not being received, check your alert configuration in Server Manager. You might have misspelled the name of that particular computer – Server Manager does not validate computer names.
