Re: Howto have HP SIM to send out SMS alerts

If your HP SIM CMS also resides on the same Linux system as your SMStools, and SMStools simply scans a directory for files to send, you would create a script for HP SIM to use that would echo the appropriate information into the file.

See page 341 in the Technical Reference Guide from http://www.hp.com/go/hpsim --> Information Library for the appropriate variables. You would probably want to use NOTICESEVERITYSTR, DEVICENAME and NOTICEPLAINTEXT at a minimum.

Re: Howto have HP SIM to send out SMS alerts

If you want to send an SMS (text) msg to a phone, just use the phone number and the appropriate SMTP gateways.
You can find a list here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS_gateways#Carrier-Provided_E-Mail_or_Web_to_SMS_Gateways

For instance. 6125551212@txt.att.net for an AT&T cell phone
