E-mail Notification BNA 12.0

  • 1.  E-mail Notification BNA 12.0

    Posted 03-19-2013 12:27 AM

    Hi all,

    I am using BNA 12 and I have one question. I have running the E-mail Notification and get a sample notice.

    IP Address: 10.x.x.x

    Source: XXXXX

    Network Advisor  E-mail Report - Product Status Event

    Network Advisor Version: 12.0.0

    Network Advisor Build: 241

    Network Advisor Server Address: 10.x.x.x

    Date: Tue Mar 19 07:25:27 CET 2013

    Event: Port 89 (8/9) changed its operational state to online

    Severity: Warning

    Is it possible to get in e-mail body addition or instead of the port number his name.

    All ports are described in the BNA

    J

    So you would like to see the port name instead of the port number in the warning message in BNA ?

    In BNA i have described this information in Master Log  for example "Port Name" field  "ARRAY_XXX_IO0001"  but in notification email i got only information about port nr from Description field In BNA "Port 175 (7/47) changed its operational state to offline". I would have wished to get all this information in e-mail together for example:

    IP Address: 10.x.x.x

    Source: XXXXX

    Network Advisor  E-mail Report - Product Status Event

    Network Advisor Version: 12.0.0

    Network Advisor Build: 241

    Network Advisor Server Address: 10.x.x.x

    Date: Tue Mar 19 07:25:27 CET 2013

    Event: ARRAY_XXX_IO0001 Port 89 (8/9) changed its operational state to online

    Severity: Warning

    It's possible to do ?

    Best if we could define the information you want to receive the notification by e-mail

    Any update on this?  We would also like to receive more detail messages about ports being offline.

    Thanks

    Hi All

    You can Do it

    1. Right Click on any Switch in BNA

    2. Click on Element Mnager --> Ports

    BNA.bmp

    You can see the Ports screen here now

    Do as high- lighted in the image above:

    Select any Port

    Click Rename

    Give a "MeaningFul name"

    Click Rename

    The new name appears under column "Port Name"

    Try offlining and check that you get a mail.

    Disadvantage:

    If you change the device connected to this por to another, the portname should be changed manually.

    Let me know for any clarifications; Correct me if i am wrong

    Hi

    I defined this information early.

    BCFA1.png

    I did it in the BNA but the effect is the same :-)BCFA2.png

    But still information in e-mail does not contain the name of the port for example:

    Master log information:

    Warning DRIVE_POZ_LTO3_13_213_FB false CORE_XXX SNMP Trap 10.161.32.150 Product Event Port 171 (7/43) changed its operational state to offline Wt kwi 02 2013 08:08:39 CEST 1 Product Event  10.161.32.150 None 10:00:00:05:33:0E:33:00 CORE_XXX (...)

    E-mail information:

    IP Address: 10.161.32.150

    Source: CORE_XXX

    Network Advisor Server Address: 10.X

    Date: Tue Apr 02 08:08:39 CEST 2013

    Event: Port 171 (7/43) changed its operational state to offline

    Severity: Warning

    It would be great if in the new version of BNA could define the information that you want  to get in e-mail.

    I have more comments to new BNA but it can be new topic ;-)

    I would like to have in SAN Event Alert e-mail a description of the port and not just the number:

    last example :-)

    Port 171 (7/43) and/or  DRIVE_POZ_LTO3_13_213

    BNA can only show the switch name as source for all product events and provide the description as it is shown in the master log . Only the master log has an additional column for port name and we can show the port name whenever it is available . But this hasn't been added to the email notifications . Currently this is not supported in BNA .

    Hi,

     

    Just checking if this is still the case Annie?

     

    Would be ideal to have this information in the email.

     

    Thanks
