Enabling Email Notification

Enabling Email Notification

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

Prerequisites

  • The connections between each Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server and all primary and secondary controllers are working correctly.
  • The email notification function is available only when the SMTP server runs correctly. Otherwise, specified email addresses fail to receive any alarm or event notification.
  • The email notification of storage system's alarms and events supports PLAIN and LOGIN authentication mechanisms. Therefore, when you configure the email server, ensure that at least one of the two authentication mechanisms is supported.
  • You have logged in to DeviceManager as an administrator that has the operation permission, which can be:
    • Super administrator
    • Administrator
  • A storage system has been configured to send only the alarms and events generated after the email notification is configured, but not alarms or events generated before the configuration.
  • Before configuring a domain name for the server, ensure that the DNS server communicates normally with the storage array or third-party server.

Precaution

  • 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 and event messages.

    1. Select Enable.
    2. Set parameters for email notification. Table 10-20 describes the parameters.
      Table 10-20 Email notification parameters

      Parameter

      Description

      Setting

      Sender Email

      Email address of the 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]

      example@gmail.com

      SMTP Server

      IP address or domain name of the SMTP server. This is an SMTP-compliant email-sending server. By using the SMTP server, you can send emails containing alarm and event messages to specific email addresses.

      NOTE:

      A maximum of two SMTP servers can be added. If one of them cannot send email notifications, the system uses the other.

      [Remarks]

      Configure the SMTP server in standard mode.

      [Example]

      192.168.1.100

      SMTP Port

      Port setting of SMTP. The default value is 25.

      NOTE:

      The SMTP port number configured on a storage system must be consistent with that configured on the SMTP server.

      [Remarks]

      The range of the SMTP port is 1 to 65535.

      [Example]

      3

      Encryption mode

      Encryption mode during network communication between the system and email server.

      • Not encrypted: the data transfer is not encrypted.
      NOTE:

      There are security risks if you select this. You are advised to select another encryption mode to improve the security of data transfers.

      • 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 according to the email server type.
      • STARTTLS: After the STARTTLS command is executed, TLS is encrypted. Communication data is not encrypted before the STARTTLS command is executed.
      NOTE:

      The encryption mode configured on a storage system must be consistent with that configured on the SMTP server.

      [Example]

      STARTTLS

      SMTP Server Authentication

      Whether the SMTP server needs to authenticate senders. If it is not selected, Username and Password are unavailable.

      [Example]

      Select the option button if the SMTP server requires authentication. Otherwise, leave it unselected.

      Username

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

      [Remarks]

      The value cannot be blank, and contains 1 to 63 characters. It cannot contain a single quotation mark (').

      [Example]

      testuser

      Password

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

      [Remarks]

      • The value cannot be blank, and contains 1 to 63 characters.
      • The password cannot contain extended ASCII characters or Unicode characters. Otherwise, the password is invalid. It is recommended that the password contain characters from the following categories:
        • Base 10 digits (0-9)
        • English uppercase characters (A-Z)
        • English lowercase characters (a-z)
        • Space
        • Special characters such as [\]^_{|}~`@!"#$%&'()*+-./:;<=>?

      [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 using this field.

      The value contains 0 to 511 bytes and cannot contain a single quotation mark (').

      [Example]

      -

      Add alarm severities

      After this function is enabled, alarm severities are displayed in the titles of alarm notification emails. Alarm severities contain Critical, Major, and Warning.

      [Example]

      Add alarm severities

    3. Add recipient email addresses.
      1. Click Add.

        The Add Recipient Information dialog box is displayed.

      2. (For V500R007C20 and earlier) Add recipient email addresses and specify the alarm and event severities.
      3. (For V500R007C30) Specify Recipient Email and Notification Type.
        NOTE:
        • If you select Alarm in Notification Type, you must also specify Alarm Severity, which can be Critical, Major, or Warning.
        • You can enable or disable the notification of specific events. For details, see "Managing Event Notification" in the OceanStor V5 Series V500R007 Administrator Guide.
      4. Click OK.

  4. (Optional) Click Test to test the connectivity between the storage system and SMTP server.
  5. Click Save.

    The Execution Result dialog box is displayed.

  6. Click Close.
