Configuring e-mail alerts

Use the system-monitor-mail fru command to configure e-mail threshold alerts for FRU, SFP, interface, and security monitoring. For an e-mail alert to function correctly, you must add the IP addresses and host names to the domain name server (DNS) in addition to configuring the domain name and name servers. A single email configuration is applicable for all switches in a logical chassis cluster. For complete information on the system-monitor-mail relay host command, refer to the Network OS Command Reference.

  1. Issue the configure terminal command to enter global configuration mode.
  2. Enter the following command to enable e-mail alerts and to configure the e-mail address.
    switch(config)# system-monitor-mail fru enable email-id

Sendmail agent configuration

The following system-monitor-mail relay host commands allow the sendmail agent on the switch to resolve the domain name and forward all e-mail messages to a relay server.
  • To create a mapping:
    switch(config)# system-monitor-mail relay ip-address 1.2.3.4 domain-name domain_name1.brocade.com
  • To delete the mapping:
    switch(config)# no system-monitor-mail relay ip-address 1.2.3.4 domain-name domain_name1.brocade.com
  • To change the domain name:
    switch(config)# system-monitor-mail relay ip-address 1.2.3.4 domain-name domain_name2.brocade.com
    NOTE
    You must delete the first domain name before you can change it to a new domain name.
  • To delete the domain name and return to the default:
    switch(config)# no system-monitor-mail relay ip-address 1.2.3.4 domain-name domain_name2.brocade.com
