Configuring Alarm Notifications

To ensure you do not miss critical events or state changes in the managed infrastructure, you can configure Veeam ONE to send notifications when alarms are triggered. There are the following types of notification:

  • Email notifications
  • SNMP traps

In this scenario, you will configure email notifications. Email notifications contain basic information about the issue that caused the alarm. Veeam ONE can send notifications when a new alarm is triggered or when an existing alarm changes its status. To follow this scenario, you must have an SMTP server.

To configure email notifications:

  1. Open Veeam ONE Client.

For more information, see Accessing Veeam ONE Client.

  1. In the main menu, click Notifications.

The Notification Settings wizard will open.

  1. At the Mail Server Settings step of the wizard, specify the following details:
  • Select the Enable email notifications check box.
  • From the drop-down list, select Custom SMTP (Basic authentication).
  • In the SMTP server field, specify DNS name or IP address of the SMTP server that must be used for sending email notifications.

The default SMTP port number is 25.

  • In the From field, enter an email address of the notification sender.

This email address will be displayed in the From field of the email header.

To adjust other settings, click Advanced and do the following:

  • For an SMTP server with SSL support, select the Connect using SSL check box.
  • If your SMTP server requires authentication, select the Use authentication check box and specify authentication credentials.
