Call home for DCFM (EMC Connectrix Manager Data Center Edition)

I am trying to set up email call home to a third party support company for our switches. I found the following doc on how to do it (, but it does not seem to be working. I have set up the email monitor and get an email with a severity of critical for a Brocade switch (see below), but that is not doing a call home. I have successfully sent the test email to verify the SMTP configuration. The call home does work for a couple McData switches using the same call center configuration for both Brocade and McData (see below). Following the above PDF, I have set up the SNMP trap recipient on the Brocade switches, but I am not sure how to validate that each device is configured for the default switch status policy. Can someone tell me why a a call home event would not be triggered for the critical event on the Brocade switch?
