I just installed DELL Server Administrator on my PowerEdge 2950 - I see that you can set an application to be executed when there are warnings, errors, etc.  What is the best way to go about having the server send the alerts to my email?

Under your preference, general settings, You can setup email servers - internal if you have them or external if you route through external SMTP pipes...
How you want it setup is completely up to you....you have a little control over events with server admin so decide what you want, and configure it that way, there is no best way for this, it depends on how much you want to see

Hi Jay_Jay - I set up the SMTP settings and tested successfully.  However - It looks like I need a batch file to be executed because it's asking for an 'absolute path to the application'.  Ideas?  Thanks

you could use a small vbscript to mail you

Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.

I created the vbscript file, but no luck.  I'm not getting any error messages when i run the script...but i'm not getting email either.   By the way...i'm running Windows Server 2008 Standard...64bit.  I double checked the email settings in the script file and they are correct as well.  any other ideas?

I would suggest trying another email script...I am not great at VB, but this is the sub that we use to send mail....
 

Option Explicit
'****************************************************************
'Email Constants
'****************************************************************
Const SUPPORT_EMAIL = "Email Destination"  
Const FROM_ADD = "Email Source"      
Const SMTP_SERVER = "SMTP Server IP"

Sub SendEmail(strMessage)
    Dim objMessage
    Set objMessage = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    objMessage.Subject = strMessage
    objMessage.From = FROM_ADD
    objMessage.To = SUPPORT_EMAIL
    objMessage.TextBody = strMessage
     
    'Normally you will only change the server name or IP.
    objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
    'Name or IP of Remote SMTP Server
    objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = SMTP_SERVER
    'Server port (typically 25)
    objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25
    objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Update
 objMessage.Send
    Set objMessage = nothing
End Sub
 
You will need to add your own code for what you want sent :) i do a process check so its a little different
