Configuring Email Notifications About Discovery Results

To stay informed about newly discovered computers, you can enable email notifications about discovery results.

Veeam Availability Console can send two types of email notifications about discovery results:

  • Veeam Availability Console can send email notifications about computers discovered by a specific discovery rule.
  • Veeam Availability Console can send summary daily email notifications with information about all computers discovered by all discovery rules for the past 24 hours.

Discovery email notifications include a list of new computers discovered since the latest email notification. If no changes are detected since the latest email notification (no new computers are discovered), Veeam Availability Console will not send a new email notification about discovery results.

Before you can receive email notifications about discovery results, make sure you completed configuration steps described in the following procedures.
