OceanStor 5300 V3, 5500 V3, 5600 V3, 5800 V3, and 6800 V3 Storage System V300R003

Routine maintenance activities are the most common activities for the storage device, including powering on or off the storage device, managing users, modifying basic parameters of the storage device, and managing hardware components. This document applies to the system administrators who are responsible for carrying out routine maintenance activities, monitoring the storage device, and rectifying common device faults.

Enabling the Email Notification Function

Enabling the Email Notification Function

This allows alarm information to be sent to specific email addresses, helping engineers troubleshoot faults.

Prerequisites

  • The connections between each Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server and primary and secondary controllers are working correctly.
  • A SMTP server is available. Otherwise, specified email addresses will not be able to receive any alarm messages.
  • The email notification function for alarms of a storage system supports PLAIN and LOGIN authentication mechanisms. When configuring mail servers, ensure that at least one of the two is supported.
  • You have logged in to the DeviceManager as an administrator who has permission. Only administrators and super administrators have permission.
  • Before configuring a domain name for the server, ensure that the DNS server can communicate normally with the storage array or third-party server.
  • For sending alarms to the SNMP server, a storage system only sends the alarms generated after the email notification function is configured and does not send alarms generated before the configuration.
  • You are advised to deploy only one SMTP server on a host, otherwise you may not receive email notification due to port conflict.

Context

  • To ensure that email notifications can be sent properly, the sender email address must match the SMTP server address and can send emails to the recipient email address. For example, if a Gmail SMTP server is used, the sender email address must be a Gmail address.
  • When two SMTP servers are configured, the sender email address must match the two SMTP server addresses and can send emails to the recipient email address. For example, if the sender email address is a Gmail address, the two SMTP server addresses must be SMTP server addresses provided by the Gmail supplier.

Procedure

  1. Log in to DeviceManager.
  2. Choose Settings > Alarm Settings > Email Notification.
  3. Configure an email address for receiving alarm messages.
    1. Select Enable.
    2. Set parameters for email notification. Table 8-2 describes the parameters.

      Table 8-2  Email Notification Parameters

      Parameter

      Description

      Setting

      Sender Email

      Email address of a sender.

      NOTE:
      The sender email address must match the SMTP server address. For example, if a Gmail SMTP server is used, the sender email address must be a Gmail address.

      [Example]

      zhangsan@163.com

      SMTP Server

      IP address or domain name of the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server. An SMTP server is an SMTP-compliant email sending server. By using the SMTP server, you can send emails containing alarm messages to specific email addresses.
      NOTE:
      A maximum of two SMTP servers can be added. If one SMTP server cannot send email notifications, the system uses another SMTP server to send email notifications.

      [Note]

      Configure the SMTP server in standard mode.

      [Example]

      192.168.1.100

      SMTP Port

      Indicates the port setting of SMTP. The default value is 25.

      [Note]

      The range of the smtp port is 1 to 65535.

      [Example]

      3

      Encryption mode

      The encryption mode during network communication between system and email server.
      • Not encrypted: the data transfer is not encrypted.
        NOTE:
        There are security risks if you select Not encrypted. You are advised to select other encryption mode to improve data transfer security.
      • SSL/TLS: SSL and TLS are two different security protocols used to ensure the security and data integrity during network communication. If you select SSL/TLS, the system automatically selects one of them for encryption based on the email server type.
      • STARTTLS: After the STARTTLS command is executed, TLS is encrypted. The communication data is not encrypted before the STARTTLS command is executed.

      [Example]

      STARTTLS

      SMTP Server Authentication

      Indicates whether the SMTP server needs to authenticate senders. If SMTP Server Authentication is not selected, Username and Password are unavailable.

      [Note]

      Select the option button if the SMTP server requires authentication; otherwise, leave the option button unselected.

      Username

      SMTP account name of the sender. When emails are sent through the SMTP server, the sender is prompted to type his/her SMTP account name and password for authentication.

      [Note]

      The value cannot be blank, and contains 1 to 63 characters.

      [Example]

      testuser

      Password

      Password of the SMTP account. When emails are sent through the SMTP server, the sender is prompted to type his/her SMTP account name and password for authentication.

      [Example]

      aJ1p23dySQ

      Prefix of the email title

      Email title field defined by senders. If there are too many emails, users can search for desired emails by this field.

      [Note]

      The value contains 0 to 511 Bytes.

      [Example]

      Add alarm severities

      After this function is enabled, alarm severities are displayed in titles of the alarm notification emails.

      [Example]

      Add alarm severities

    3. Add or modify recipient email addresses.

      • Add recipient email addresses.
        1. Click Add.

          The Add Recipient Information dialog box is displayed.

        2. Add recipient email addresses and specify the severities of alarms triggering the alarm notification.
        3. Click OK.
      • Modify a recipient email address.
        1. Select email addresses that you want to modify and click Modify.

          The Modify Recipient Information dialog box is displayed.

        2. Modify the recipient email addresses and specify the severities of alarms triggering the alarm notification.
        3. Click OK.

  4. Optional: Click Test to test whether the email addresses are correctly configured.

    • If the configuration is correct, the mail boxes corresponding to the email addresses can receive the test mail.
    • If the configuration is incorrect, the mail boxes cannot receive the test mail and return an error message. Configure the email addresses again.

  5. Click Save.

    The Execution Result dialog box is displayed.

  6. Click Close.
