Snapshot Job - Default Notifications

The Default Notifications panel provides options for defining notifications that are generated when a job completes.

If you have set up notifications for a particular scheduled job, those notifications are generated instead of default notifications. Default notifications can also provide information about Snapshot Job results.

Default notifications can take the form of emails or SNMP traps. When a job completes, an SNMP trap is sent to a specified server, where it can be read using software that receives and interprets SNMP traps. Default notifications are sent when you run a job immediately (that is, you do not schedule the job) or a scheduled job completes but you have not set up email or SNMP notifications for that scheduled occurrence.

The Default Notifications panel also lets you define email messages and SNMP traps when any change to a snapshot occurs. The Default Notifications panel also lets you send email messages and generate SNMP traps when any change to a snapshot occurs. This capability provides a simple mechanism for tracking configuration changes. Note that the first time a Snapshot Job runs, no changes are detected because the first run establishes a baseline against which future changes are tracked.

Job Run Notifications

FieldDescription

Send email to

Lists email addresses of the accounts to notify when a job completes with the status that you specify. Separate multiple email addresses with semicolons, such as sysadmin@bmc.com;sysmgr@bmc.com. After entering email address information, check the statuses that cause an email to be generated. The statuses can be Success, Failed, or Aborted.

Send SNMP trap to

Provides name or IP address of the server to notify when the job completes. After entering server information, select the statuses that should cause an SNMP trap to be generated. The statuses can be Success, Failed, or Aborted.

BMC Server Automation provides a management information base (MIB) that describes its SNMP trap structure. You can use this MIB to create scripts that integrate traps into your trap collection system. The MIB is located on the Application Server host computer at installDirectory/Share/BladeLogic.mib.

List failed servers in email notification

Indicates that email notifications should list all servers on which a job has failed.

Snapshot Change Notifications

FieldDescription

After entering email address information, check the statuses that cause an email to be generated. The statuses can be either Changed or Not Changed.

Append snapshot change results to email
