  • 1.  How to configure alarms to send email

    Posted Jan 19, 2021 03:35 PM

    Hi,

    I configured SMTP server & sender (lhttps://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/6.7/com.vmware.vsphere.vcenterhost.doc/GUID-467DA288-7844-48F5-BB44-99DE6F6160A4.html

    I would now like to configure vCenter to send email alerts on pre-configured triggered alarms.
    I don't wish to configure any new alarm definitions (not yet anyway) just have the same alarms that I see in vcenter console, be sent to me by email.
    How do I do it? 

    Thanks for the help.

    Another option would be going to vCenter --> Alarm definitions and adding a send an email (with it's recipient address) as an action.
