C7000 OA AlertMail configuration

Bug?

FW 2.25

Cannot configure ALERTMAIL SMTPSERVER to be a hostname. It only accepts an ipaddress.
GUI accepts limited number of characters but is rejected on clicking "Apply" as invalid.


#Configure Alertmail
SET ALERTMAIL MAILBOX "root@blah.ca"
SET ALERTMAIL SMTPSERVER "smtp.blah.ca"
SET ALERTMAIL SENDERDOMAIN "myserver.u.private"
ENABLE ALERTMAIL

Re: C7000 OA AlertMail configuration

This is as per design,

SET ALERTMAIL SMTPSERVER : Sets the SMTP server. This is the mail server where the Onboard Administrator will deliver its email based events.

Re: C7000 OA AlertMail configuration

The help page for the gui states that it can be a host name. Clearly the command line only indicates an address.

A hostname would be preferred in case the the smtp server with the ipaddress is down, would be the better solution - or allowing a list of ipaddresses to be tried.

I think they will be supporting it in the coming releases.
You are right about the GUI it does say host name.
