Thread: E-mail notification for non-scheduled job's

  1. E-mail notification for non-scheduled job's


    We have a 24 by 7 operation that we can't schedule backups for because we
    don't know when SQL will be quiet long enough to run the Pre DBCC.
    To get around this the admin down there inserts the tape and double click
    an icon that runs a bemcmd. This fires of a DBCC check and back's up the
    DB's. Then it should send an e-mail to say Sql's finished and carry on to
    backup the drives.
    The e-mail informs the Admin that the Db is ready for use again.
    Two issues
    1. Can you setup e-mail notication without a schedule.
    2. We're trying to invoke mapisend from a cmd file but the arguments are
    ignore.

    Any ideas ?

  2. Re: E-mail notification for non-scheduled job's

    For the cmd-line send:
    verify tha the BENT service account is authorized to use that command
    also, try including an absolute path in the command rather than replying
    on the path variable, (ie d:\directory\subdir\mapisend parm1 parm2 etc)
