About alert notifications

Active Directory Health Analyzer generates alerts when problems with Active Directory® are detected. You can create notifications to send to specified email recipients. A wizard helps you create multiple types of notifications to address varied audiences and their specific needs. For more information on the types of alerts you can include in the notifications, see the Alerts Appendix in the Quest® Active Administrator® User Guide.

For example, you might send only site alerts on a selected site to a certain user. You would exclude all forests, all domains, and all domain controllers from the notification. On the Site Selection page, you would choose the selected site.

Assign names and add descriptions to your alert notifications so you can easily manage the list. You can edit and remove alert notifications as your needs change. You also can limit the number of alert notifications sent within a specified time period.

Once you create alert notifications, you can see who alerts were sent to and when by displaying the details of an alert. See Viewing alert details.
