Hi all, im having an issue setting up alarms to multiple users, whether it be in the multiple users or distribution groups. I have found the following article that explans the problem with multiple email addressed, so i have tried an email distribution group yet the alerts triggers dont send the email to the apropriate members in the group. Any ideas?

thanks

Hi Andrew, intially yes then i delete it and created a single entry containing the security group. I'm able to receive emails to the distrubition group, but not when applying it to the actions in vcentre

Would you like me to share with you, a much better and FREE method of dealing with ALL Alerts from vCenter Server!

vCenter Server is very noisy, when you enable alerts, e.g. sends High CPU, Snapshot Alerts - and very quickly you could end up with 500 emails in your Inbox!

We have implemented this FREE solution now to almost ALL our clients, and they are very happy with it!

oh, and you only have to send the Alert from vCenter Server to a single nominated email address.

Interested  or not ?

Would you like a rule based selection, of what teams, individuals, get alerts ?

and for FREE, easy to deploy in under 5mins!

Okay, we've been using an exciting product called Solarwinds Alert Central

http://www.solarwinds.com/alertcentral.aspx

It's free, it's an OVA, so easily deployed. Import/Deploy, add an IP Address, and Configure.

and then

1. Consolidate
2. Filter
3. Sort
4. Deliver Alerts

Simply create a new mailbox, e.g. alerts@company.com, so set vCenter Server to use this email address.

enable POP3/IMAP on this mailbox.

Run Alert Central, Create Rules, Filter, and it will collect the emails/alerts, and then you can design rules, as to where to deliver the emails, there is a dashboard, so you can see the alerts coming in as well, and where they have been assigned!
