Managing Email Notification

Managing Email Notification

This section describes how to modify the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server and email address for receiving alarm notifications.

Adding a Backup SMTP Server

This section describes how to add a backup SMTP server. After a backup SMTP server is configured, the two SMTP servers back up each other. If one fails, the other one takes over to send email notifications.

Prerequisites
  • A maximum of two SMTP servers can be added.
  • The connections between each SMTP server and primary and secondary controllers are normal.
  • You have logged in to DeviceManager as a super administrator or an administrator who has operation permission.
  • The DNS server communicates properly 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. Add a backup SMTP server.

    1. Click on the right of SMTP Server in the Sender Settings area to display the text box for the SMTP server address.
    2. Enter the IP address or domain name of the backup SMTP server to be added.
      Figure 5-1 Email notification page

  4. Confirm that parameters listed in Table 5-12 are properly set and click Save.

    The Execution Result dialog box is displayed.

    Table 5-12 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]

    user@163.com

    SMTP Port

    Indicates the 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

    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 this. You are advised to select another encryption mode to improve the security of data transfer.

    • 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

    Indicates 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]
