Configuring default settings for global notification methods

This section includes the following topics:

Configuring email server settings for notifications

To send notifications by email, you must configure the Outgoing Email Server (SMTP) settings. You can configure the SMTP settings from the Change Settings page.

2
On the Configuration page, click Server Settings.
3
Under User Interface, click Notification. In the Notification dialog box, under Mail Server, configure the following options.

Outgoing E-mail Server (SMTP)

Type the machine name or IP Address of the Mail Server.

Port number

The default SMTP listener port is port number 25. If the Mail Server is configured to listen on a different port, specify the port number.

NetVault’s E-mail Address

Type the sender’s email address for notifications.

NetVault’s Real Name

Type the sender’s name for email notifications.

Perform Authentication

To perform authentication, select this check box. You can use this setting only if your Mail Server supports LOGIN or PLAIN protocols.

Authentication Account

Specify a user account that can be used for SMTP authentication. This option is only required if the Perform Authentication check box is selected.

If no user account is specified, the user name from NetVault’s E‑mail Address is used for authentication. For example, if you specify “User-A@mycompany.com” in the NetVault’s E‑mail Address box, NetVault Backup uses “User-A” to perform SMTP authentication.

Authentication Password

Type the password for the SMTP authentication account.

Confirmation Authentication Password

Re-type the password for confirmation.

Use hostname instead of nvsendmail

Select this check box to use the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) instead of nvsendmail with the EHLO and HELO commands. NetVault Backup uses the host name in mail server messages, so the system must be set up with an FQDN to display the host name in FQDN format.

Click Apply to apply the new settings and close the dialog box.

Configuring SysOp email ID for notifications

To use the Sysop Email notification method, you must configure the SysOp email address. You can configure the email address from the Change Settings page.

Email Address of System Administrator
