In Part 3 I would like to show how to set up the SMTP Configuration and to create custom Alarms.
Step 1: Set up SMTP – Server
On the Administration site navigate to „SMTP“ und Configuration.
Fill out the the boxes with your SMTP Server.
Step 2: Custom
For my example Alarm I choose the loss of a network link from specific cluster.
1. On the Interactive Analytic site start a query and search for the ESX Host.
2. Add a Constraint -> vmw_vmnic (VMware – vSphere)
2. Add the eMail Address that should receive that Alert
You can also send these Alert to a vCOPS Server. Just select the given resource.
