Part Number

You can view alert email messages, alert Syslog messages, and alert SNMP trap messages using Device Manager - Storage Navigator or using the maintenance utility.

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

  • Email: Check your email to view alerts sent by email. Alerts that are reported through email are the same as the SIM information that is displayed in the Alert window or reported through an SNMP trap.

  • Syslog: Check the messages on the Syslog server to view alert information sent there.

  • SNMP traps: To view SNMP trap information, use the SNMP Manager in Device Manager - Storage Navigator. See the Hitachi Alert Notification Guide for information about using SNMP traps.
