Alert for Windows Event ID

Is there a way I can have SolarWinds capture the occurrence of a particular event ID in Windows?  A usage case would be to have the product alert us when the event ID appears indicating a certificate is about to expire.  Thanks.

You can use SAM to create a custom event monitor to check event logs and monitor for specific events. 

Link for the information - Windows Event Log monitor

Or SAM does have some built in SSL Monitoring Templates you can use. I have these running against my Exchange Servers to let me know when the certs will expire.

There are a few different ways to get the same results.  Thanks  - Dave
