Configuring event notification settings

You can configure Unified Manager to send alert notifications when an event is generated or when an event is assigned to a user. You can configure the SMTP server that is used to send the alert, and you can set various notification mechanisms—for example, alert notifications can be sent as emails or SNMP traps.

Before you begin

You must have the following information:

You must have the Application Administrator or Storage Administrator role.


  1. In the left navigation pane, click General > Notifications.
  2. In the Notifications page, configure the appropriate settings and click Save.


    • If the From Address is pre-filled with the address, you should change it to a real, working email address to make sure that all email notifications are delivered successfully.
    • If the host name of the SMTP server cannot be resolved, you can specify the IP address (IPv4 or IPv6) of the SMTP server instead of the host name.
