About Fabric Watch E-mail Notification

Hello,

With Fabric Watch of Fabric OS v6.4.0, I configured e-mail alert settings.

I could send test mail, but I want to know the exact text of the error mail,

that the SAN switch sent in case of critical environment.

So, could anybody just write down the samles of e-mail sent from Fabric Watch?

Thank you.

Haven't tinkered much with FW, but perhaps th UG will tell? It can be found in this thread and other places.

An option would be to set a trashold ridiculously low or high to trigger an real email.

Thank you for your reply, dion.v.d.c.

I checked the documents, and find samples of "syslog" from Message Reference,
(ex: 2009/02/10-14:18:04, , 88, SLOT 6 | FFDC | CHASSIS, INFO, ESNSVT_DCX,
supportSave has uploaded support information to the host with IP address
168.159.16.128)
but not of "e-mail" text from documents including Fabric Watch Administrator's Guide.

I know testing actually is the best and simple way,
but I can't do that for an environmental reason...
That's why I registar this thread.

Thank you.

Sorry but I don not know what message to expect in the email.

With testing I didn't mean for you to tamper with production connection, but changing the FW config/alert for, lets say, low fan (rpm) to a level thats higher than the actual fan (rpm) and observe if any mail gets send.

I don't know wheter this value exists, but any value will do as long as you don't have to touch any production connections to test.

OK, I changed the threshold value, for the temperature health check,

and could receive some e-mail with following messages.

   Env Temperature 1 is above high boundary, (High=40, Low=0). Current value : 46 C.(Out_Of_Range)

   Env Temperature 1 is between high & low boundary, (High=63, Low=0). Current value : 46 C.(In_Range)

So I had to make some configuration changes of san switch,

but anyway, I could accomplish what I wanted to do.

I appreciate your advice.

Thank you.
