Send Email Notification when SQL SERVER restarts

The following script can be used to create a SQL AGENT Job which will fire when SQL SERVER is restarted. This can reduce the time it takes to trouble shoot issues. For example, I support a SQL transactional replication environment. Sometimes I get random replication failures only to find out a the publisher a database server I do not support has restarted.

USE [msdb]
GO

/****** Object:  Job [DBM113_Service_Restart_Notification]    Script Date: 05/07/2015 07:09:10 ******/
BEGIN TRANSACTION
DECLARE @ReturnCode INT
SELECT @ReturnCode = 0
/****** Object:  JobCategory [[Uncategorized (Local)]]]    Script Date: 05/07/2015 07:09:10 ******/
IF NOT EXISTS (SELECT name FROM msdb.dbo.syscategories WHERE name=N'[Uncategorized (Local)]' AND category_class=1)
BEGIN
EXEC @ReturnCode = msdb.dbo.sp_add_category @class=N'JOB', @type=N'LOCAL', @name=N'[Uncategorized (Local)]'
IF (@@ERROR <> 0 OR @ReturnCode <> 0) GOTO QuitWithRollback

END
