Hi,

To send alarm email, you need check the option Send alerts to specified email addressesand then specify Recipient Email Addresses, and the recipient email addresses, andconfigure the SMTP server by clicking on Settings.



Sender Address: Specifies sender email address.
SMTP Server: Specifies IP address and domain name of SMTP server.
Port: Specifies port of SMTP server.
Default port number is 25.

If the SMTP server requires authentication, select Authentication required, and enterusername and password.

Thanks

To configure alerts for physical hosts and virtual machines on a Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) cluster, you'll typically need to use a monitoring and management tool specifically designed for HCI environments. Although the specific steps may vary depending on the HCI solution you're using, here's a general guideline:

Identify the monitoring and management tool: Determine the tool or software you're using to monitor and manage your HCI cluster. Examples include VMware vSphere with vCenter Server, Microsoft Azure Stack HCI, Nutanix Prism, or other HCI-specific management platforms.

Access the management interface: Launch the management interface of your HCI solution. This could be a web-based console or a dedicated client application.

Configure monitoring settings: Within the management interface, navigate to the monitoring or alerts section. Look for options related to setting up alerts for hosts and virtual machines. These options are usually found in the settings or configuration menus.

Select alert criteria: Determine the criteria for triggering alerts. This can include factors such as CPU or memory utilization thresholds, storage capacity limits, network connectivity issues, or specific events like hardware failures. Different HCI solutions provide various alert options, so refer to the documentation or user guides for your specific platform.

Define alert actions: Specify the actions to be taken when an alert is triggered. Common actions include sending email notifications, generating SNMP traps, executing scripts or commands, or integrating with external monitoring systems.

Assign alert recipients: Specify the individuals or groups who should receive the alerts. This typically involves providing email addresses or configuring user accounts within the monitoring tool.

Test and verify: After configuring the alert settings, it's important to test and verify that they are functioning as intended. Trigger test conditions, such as exceeding a predefined threshold, and ensure that the alert is generated and delivered to the designated recipients.

Fine-tune and customize: Monitor the alerts over time and refine the settings as needed. Adjust the thresholds, add or remove alert conditions, or modify the notification recipients based on your specific requirements and feedback.

Remember that the exact steps and terminology may vary depending on the HCI solution you're using. Consult the documentation or user guides provided by your HCI vendor for detailed instructions specific to your environment.

Choose a monitoring tool: Select a monitoring tool like VMware vSphere, Microsoft SCOM, Nagios, or Zabbix.
Install and configure the tool: Set up the monitoring tool on a dedicated server or virtual machine.
Discover hosts and virtual machines: Use the monitoring tool to automatically discover or manually add the physical hosts and virtual machines in your HCI cluster.
Define alert thresholds: Determine the conditions (CPU usage, memory, disk space, etc.) that will trigger an alert and set appropriate thresholds.
Create alert rules: Configure rules in the monitoring tool to specify actions when the defined conditions are met (email notifications, SNMP traps, etc.).
Assign alerts to teams: Determine the responsible teams or individuals to receive alerts and assign them accordingly.
Test and refine: Validate the alerts by generating test events and refine thresholds and rules if needed.
Monitor and manage alerts: Continuously monitor the alerts, address issues, and optimize your HCI environment based on the information provided.

HiHi,

1. To configure the alert settings.
2. Navigate to System > Alerts > Alert Options.
Select the alert threshold to be adjusted and save the changes:
- Host alert events settings.
- Physical network host network alert events settings
- Storage alert events settings
- Virtual Machines alert events settings
- Virtual network device alert events settings
- Cluster Alert Events settings

Pls find the attached HCI Alert Options Setting OM for your Ref:

Access the administration interface: Open the HCI solution's management interface. A web-based console or a separate client application might be used.

Determine the criterion for triggering alerts by selecting alert criteria. CPU or memory utilization thresholds, storage capacity restrictions, network connectivity challenges, or particular occurrences such as hardware breakdowns are examples of such causes. Different HCI solutions offer different alert choices; thus, consult the documentation or user manuals for your individual platform.

Test and verify: After establishing the alert settings, it is critical to test and check that they are working properly. Trigger test circumstances, such as surpassing a predetermined threshold, and ensure that the warning is created and sent to the appropriate recipients.
