ems.engine.event.dnsLkupFail

Severity

ERROR

Description

This message occurs when the Event Management System (EMS) fails to send an event to a mail destination due to name resolution lookup failures for the mail server specified in EMS configuration options. Possible reasons for failure: DNS servers are not reachable, name services might not be configured correctly or, the configured mail server host name is no longer valid.

Corrective Action

Use the "vserver services name-service dns show" command to check the DNS configuration. If DNS is not configured correctly, use the "vserver services name-service dns modify" command to correct DNS server information, or the "vserver services name-service dns host modify" to correct static host name-to-IP address mapping information. Use the "event config {show|modify}" command to verify or change the configured mail server.

Syslog Message

Parameters

emsId (STRING): EMS identifier of the event that was not sent to the mail destination.
