This topic describes how to specify the email settings necessary to report failure trap reference codes (SIMs).

  • You must have the Storage Administrator (Initial Configuration) role to perform this task.
  • You must have installed a mail server that supports Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). The SVP uses PLAIN or LOGIN of SMTP authentication (SMTP-AUTH) to connect to the mail server. CRAM-MD5 and DIGEST-MD5 of SMTP-AUTH are not supported.
  • You must release Port 25 if a firewall is used (because Port 25 is used for communication between the SVP and the mail server).
  1. Display the Device Manager - Storage Navigator main window.
  2. From the Settings menu, select Environmental Setting > Edit Alert Settings.
  3. For Notification Alert, select one of the following:
    • All (Sends alerts of all SIMs.)
    • Host Report (Sends alerts only of SIMs that report to hosts.)

    Alert destinations are common to Syslog, SNMP, and Email.

  4. Click the Email tab.
  5. For Mail Notice, select Enable to enable that option.
  6. In Email Settings, enter the destination email address and the attribute (To, Cc, Bcc).
    • To add an email address, click Add and then specify the email address and attribute in the Add Address window.
    • To change an email address and the attribute, select the check box for the email address you want to change, and then click Change. You can change the email address and attribute in the Change Settings window.

      You can select multiple email addresses. If you select multiple email addresses, you can change their attributes only.

    • To delete email addresses, select the check boxes for the email addresses you want to delete, and then click Delete.
    Make sure that you specify these settings if Mail Notice is set to Enable.
  7. Enter the source email address (required) and the return email address (option).
    You can enter up to 255 characters of alphabets, numerals, and symbols (!, #, $, %, &, `, +, -, *, /, ', ^, {, }, _, and .).
  8. Enter the information of the email server.
    • Identifier

      To specify the host name, select Identifier and then enter up to 63 characters of alphabets, numerals, and symbols (! $ % ( ) ' - _ . @ ~).

    • IPv4

      To specify an IPv4 address, select IPv4 and then enter four numbers (0 to 255) in the following format:

      XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX (Each XXX indicates a number.)

    • IPv6

      To specify an IPv6 address, select IPv6 and then enter eight hexadecimal numbers (0 to FFFF) in the following format:

      YYYY:YYYY:YYYY:YYYY:YYYY:YYYY:YYYY:YYYY (Each YYYY indicates a hexadecimal number.)

      You can also specify the abbreviated format of IPv6 addresses.

    Make sure that you specify these settings if Mail Notice is set to Enable.

  9. In SMTP Authentication, select Enable (to use SMTP authentication) or Disable (to not to use SMTP authentication). If you select Enable, also enter the account name and password that you use for SMTP authentication.
    You can enter up to 255 characters of alphabets, numerals, and symbols (! $ % ( ) ' - _ . @ ~).
    Make sure that you specify these settings if Mail Notice is set to Enable.
  10. Click Send Test Email, if necessary, to test the settings.
  11. Confirm that you received the test email.
  12. Click Finish.
  13. Confirm the settings in the Confirm window, and then enter the task name in Task Name.
  14. Click Apply.
    The task is registered. If the check box for Go to tasks window for status is selected, the Tasks window opens.
