    Hi,

     

    We have Brocade switch SAN768B, I want to know if we setup email notification for alerts/errors with in the switch.

     

    Or

     

    Do we have to purchase any monitoring software.

     

    Thanks & Regards

    Kumar

    Yes. And No.

     

    IE - MAPS has an email notification that can be setup. I've not had any luck in doing so, but it can be done. (I was limited by the clients email setup)

     

    BNA does have this feature as well, but it does require an Enterprise license (for the DCX SAN768B).

    Hi Kumarm,

     

    as the others mentioned, you have the possibility to use MAPs e-mail notification for alerting, but you need an SMTP server to configure that.
    mapsconfig --emailcfg -address email_address --> add the recepient address


    relayconfig --config -rla_ip relay_ip -rla_dname domain_name --> add the SMTP server IP and domain name

     

    mapsconfig --testmail --> testing the settings
    MAPS test welcome mail sent successfully

     

    Alternte option could be using INA, which has GUI interface to do configure the above options.
