NNM notification possible?

Is it possible to have NNM 6.1 (Win2K) notify a person by way of email or pager if a critical event occurs. That is, NNM out-of-the-box with no 3rd-party util or app. If possible, how? Thanks.

You can use the Automatic Action function on the event configuration page, at the bottom.

If you click on HELP, it will give you a link to samples of automatic actions, variables.

Re: NNM notification possible?

using Automatic Action you can notify by e-mail any kind of event.

If you don't want to have a 3rd part software you can try to use your mail client (outlook, eudora) via command line. But I don't know if your mail client allows it.

You can try if you have a internet web based mail or download a free software as postiex ( or a shareware as mailsend ( this is the best, for me.

Mailsend is the program I'm using...

At Last, you must verify that your email-client supports command-line input for sending email..

Hope that can help you

Re: NNM notification possible?


I have tried the freeware postie, I couldn't send e-mail message with exchange server, although it has IMAP4 enabled.
I used mapisend command line, I got mapisend from BackOffice Resource Kit.
Ovactiond.lrf have to be changed because mapisend must be started with a NT domain account, will not work with System Account.

Thank you
