Example for Configuring an Email Server to Send Alarm Notifications

Example for Configuring an Email Server to Send Alarm Notifications

In daily network monitoring, O&M engineers can monitor the network status based on alarm notifications emails they receive. This example illustrates how to configure an email server on an enterprise campus network to send alarm notifications to O&M engineers.

Applicable Products and Versions

V200R005C00 or later versions

Networking Requirements

A company's O&M engineer Jack is responsible for monitoring the campus network to ensure normal service operation.

To monitor the network status, Jack has the following requirements:

  • Jack has to process a large number of emails during daily maintenance and is unable to monitor current alarms all the time. Therefore, Jack wants to receive alarm notifications quickly upon network exceptions, rather than staring at the NMS system to wait for exception notifications.
  • Because a large number of alarms are displayed in the current alarm list, it is difficult for Jack to identify important alarms. Therefore, Jack only wants to receive important alarms.
Figure 5-8 Topology of the enterprise campus network

Requirement Analysis

  • Jack has to process a large number of emails during daily maintenance and is unable to monitor current alarms or the topology all the time. The remote alarm notification function can enable Jack to receive emails about alarms reported by devices. In this way, Jack can know the network status while completing other work.
  • Jack wants to receive only critical and major alarms. Alarm reporting rules can be set, so that devices report only critical and major alarms to Jack.

Prerequisites

  • Devices have been added to eSight. For details, see Example for Configuring Automatic Device Discovery Using SNMPv2c.
  • The email server has been configured.
  • You have operation rights for Alarm Settings.
  • You have operation rights for Email Server Settings.
  • If the eSight server has antivirus software installed, ensure that the email sending function is not disabled by the antivirus software.

Procedure

  1. Obtain the enterprise's Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) email server IP address and target mailbox, for example: Example:

    • Email server IP address: 10.82.67.36
    • Target mailbox: jack@huawei.com
    NOTE:
    • The email server uses basic identity authentication for access control. Therefore, obtain the user name and password for identity authentication.
    • To ensure email security, the enterprise may use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connections. Therefore, check whether the enterprise uses SSL connections before configuring the email server.

  2. Set interworking parameters for eSight and the email server.

    1. Choose System > System Settings > System Interconnection from the main menu. Choose Set Notified Server > Email Server from the navigation tree on the left.
    2. Set parameters based on information obtained in Step 1.

      In this example, basic identity authentication is set for the enterprise's email server, but SSL connections are not used.

      NOTE:

      eSight supports only SMTP email server settings.

    3. Click Test.

      The message "Connectivity test succeeded." is displayed and the target mailbox receives a test email, indicating that interworking parameters are set successfully.

  3. Set the alarm receiver list and mailboxes.

    1. Choose System > System Settings > System Interconnection from the main menu. Choose Set Notified User > User Group from the navigation tree on the left.

    2. Set the alarm receiver list and mailboxes.

      NOTE:

      To send remote notifications, enter personal data including mobile phone numbers and mailboxes. You must comply with local laws or the enterprise's privacy policies and take proper measures to fully protect personal data.

  4. Set remote notification rules.

    1. Choose Fault > Alarm Settings from the main menu. Choose Notification Rule from the navigation tree on the left.

    2. Set alarm receiving parameters.
      • Based on requirement analysis, Jack wants to receive critical and major alarms of network devices on a 24/7 basis. The default values of parameters Alarm Sources, Alarms, and Advanced Settings meet Jack's requirement. Therefore, retain the default settings.
      • Select the user group created in Step3.

Verification

When network devices generate critical or major alarms, Jack's mailbox can receive alarm notifications.

Summary and Suggestions

  • To receive remote notifications about certain devices or alarms, select Customized alarm source in Alarm Source.

  • To modify the alarm receiver list or information, Choose System > System Settings > System Interconnection from the main menu and Choose Set Notified User > User from the navigation tree on the left.
