Test event notifier

Hi,
on a ML-370 G3 no events were sent out by the event notifier. I've changed some settings now & would like to test if it is working. Is there a way to trigger an event? I wouldn't want to pull out a harddisk which would be a possibility. The installed version of the notifier software is 6.40.

Thanks and regards

Hi,

if you have two alimentations or two lancards you can test it by unplug one.
Or only disconnect lan when users are not working, or unplug a fan

Pulling a redundant power supply would be another good choice for testing.

Thanks,
unfortunately there is neither a redundant powersupply nor a redundant NIC in this server. Pulling out the plug for the fan sounds like a good idea: Will the rear fan trigger an event or do I need to pull the power for the CPU fan?

Assuming that you have a full complement of redundant fans installed in an ML370 G5, you can pull any single fan which will cause an event.

A test event can also be generated from the SMH (System Management Homepage). Click the 'Settings' tab. Click the 'SNMP & Agent Configuration' link. Click the 'Send Test Trap' button.
