Change destination address for event notification mails

Hello,

I need to change mail address from root to an address monitored 7x24.

Is it possible to sent event notification mails to other address instead root?

Thanks in advance,

Carles

Yes.

You have to setup sendmail setup from source machine. Try to make remote machine as resolvable one.

# from source machine
# nslookup

echo "test" | mailx -s "test" remote-uesr@remote-machine

Go to remote machine and check mail contents

# mail
did u get that mail.

If it is success then, automate with cron schedular to make notification.

hth.

Easy to suggest when don't know about the problem!

Re: Change destination address for event notification mails

Hi Charles,

The easiest solution is to add an alias in the /etc/mail/aliases file and run a newaliases.

Otherwise you need to change the mail address in every single .sap* file in the /var/stm/config/tools/monitor directory.

Hope this helps,

Hi,

The easiest way is with the .forward file

create a file .forward in the home directory of root

.forward contains
your.email@yourcompany.com

The mails will be automaticaly forwarded

Many ways to do it.

1. New alias for new address in /etc/mail/alises file. and do newaliase

2. .forward file in root's home dir and put you email address in it.

3. In config files.
There is no substitute to HARDWORK
