Thread: Include Logs with SMTP Notification?

  1. Include Logs with SMTP Notification?


    Maybe I'm missing something obvious. BE 8.0 on NT. GO to Notifications WIzard
    and you can setup notifications via 'Email' which requires MAPI, etc. and
    SMTP which will send mail via another SMTP server.

    I have no MAPI app installed on the backup server and have no plans to install
    one. So I use SMTP notifcation via one of our SMTP mail servers.

    However, I want to include the job logs in my notifications. The problem
    is, I can only do that with MAPI based 'email' notification. I cannot find
    a selection anywhere that will let me do it for SMTP notification.

    Here is why: TO include the log file, you must enable the option by setting
    up email notification via the scheduled job (right click - Properties) You
    can't do it via the global notifications wizard. Anyway, when you click
    'Email Setup' under the job properties you get a MAPI error.

    Why in the world would they limit that setup to just MAPI when the global
    setup allows SMTP?

    Am I missing something obivous here?

  2. Re: Include Logs with SMTP Notification?

    I too am having the same problem.

    In addition, the "Test" button does not send a test email with SMTP. I'm
    pretty sure I've configured the SMTP settings correctly, but whenever I add
    an SMTP notification, it never tests. No error message or anything.

    It really seems like SMTP is pretty much disabled in v8.0, unless there's
    some secret setup I'm missing.

    Hopefully there is an easy fix for this, as it shouldn't be necessary to
    install an entirely seperate email client just for outgoing notifications.

    This only works if you use a MAPI email program (like Exchange) You cannot
    setup email notification for SMTP on a job by job basis.

    You can receive a e-mail with your log files, if only in your each job scheduled
    , you have configuerd setup email for each job.

    On each job properties, advanced , setup e-mail.

    I hoppe for you a good success.

    Hi Mike,

    No, I don't think you're missing anything here - I believe that Veritas just
    haven't provided support to add log files.

    Back during v7.x days I was really annoyed that the only e-mail solution
    was MAPI and we kept an Exchange server solely for BENT alerting. Come v8.0
    with the inclusion of SMTP alerting and I was over the moon... until I saw
    that you can't attach the log files!

    I hope someone from Veritas reads this and fixes this major oversight - it's
    such a simple thing to add!

    Cheers,
    Anthony

    Veritas has included this feature in v8.6. SMTP notification w/logs requires
    a registry change....Search KB for TechNote ID: 238072. Not sure if this
    works for v8.0...
