We recently installed SCOM 2007 and it appears to be working correctly except for one thing; it is not sending any notification emails. I have set up the notifications following any and all directions I have found on the Internet. We have recipents, subscriptions, and email settings in place. We have also setup our Exchange 2003 server to relay messages from the server where SCOM is installed. I have also set up a Domain Admin account in the notification profile on the SCOM server.
I have installed a few management packs that allow for notification testing, but they seem to indicate that notifications are working correctly. Still no emails.
This is the error I get in Event Viewer
In SendEmail Function with parameters End-to-End Notification Test End-to-End Notification Test
Monitors for Event ID:1000 Source: NotificationTest in the Application Event Log and triggers a critical alert.
The alert occurred: 10/13/2008 3:38:06 PM
The severity was: Error firstname.lastname@example.org
I have also checked our AV (Symantec) and as far as I can tell, it is not set to block out going SMTP message from the SCOM server.
I am at my wits ends, as SCOM appears to be set up (alerts are showing on the system) but no one is receiving emails.
