Part Number

This topic describes how to set the Edit Alert Settings.

Be sure to document your storage system name before this process, because the settings will be cleared when the SVP is replaced.

You must have the Storage Administrator (Initial Configuration) role to perform this task.

For more information, see the System Administrator Guide.

  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 SNMP tab.
  5. For Extension SNMP, select Enable to enable that option.
  6. In System Group Information, enter the Storage System Name, Contact, and Location.
    Changes made to information here are also reflected in the Storage System window in Device Manager - Storage Navigator.
  7. Click Finish.
  8. Enter a name for the task in the Confirm window, confirm the settings, and then click Apply.
