We have installed VMware Vsphere 4.0 update 1 in a SR2600URLXR (S5520UR with RMM3).
Forgetting the Intel Active System Console, we would like to receive any hardware alert (PS failure, ...) by e-mail. Is it possible? How?
Many thanks in advance,
When any hw fails I receive a message with the subject "Error from " without any body. Is it possible to get anything more specific?
For example saying if a power supply has failed.
To get more specific alert and actions, you can configure PEF options.
See below formore details:
Platform Event Filtering (PEF) provides a mechanism for configuring the BMC to take selected actions on event
messages that it receives or has internally generated. These actions include operations such as system power-off,
system reset, as well as triggering the generation of an alert.
The BMC maintains an
event filter table that is used to select which events trigger an action and which actions to
perform. Each time the BMC receives an event message (either externally or internally generated) it compares
the event data against the entries in the event filter table. The BMC scans all entries in the table and collects a
set of actions to be performed as determined by the entries that were matched.
question: i didnt understand your last question. In which environment you trying this?
