Adding notifications

Optionally, you can configure NAS Bridge to generate alert notifications. NAS Bridge sends email messages when specific internal events occur or when certain threshold values are reached. This feature is designed to keep you informed about the operational status of the system.

Before you begin

You must have at least one email server defined.

About this task

NAS Bridge generates email messages based on a configurable severity level. The severity values are arranged in order from the least severe (Debug) to the most severe (Emergency). NAS Bridge generates email alerts for the selected severity level as well as for all higher severity levels. Note that the alert emails originate from the NAS Bridge web administrator account (which is in email format); if multiple administrator accounts are defined, the first one in the list is used.
