SMTP

You can send the InfiniBox event notifications via Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP).

Creating an SMTP notification target

Set an SMTP target for InfiniBox notifications. An SMTP server address is required. Optionally, you can define a new server by setting the host, port, user and password. You can also determine whether to use the secured TLS protocol.

config.notifications.smtp.modify host=smtp port=25 tls=tls fromaddress=no-reply@infinidat.com

Listing SMTP notification targets

NAME           HOST                PORT  TLS USERNAME  FROM ADDRESS            SUBJECT PREFIX                                                                                                            
customer-smtp  smtp.infinidat.com  25    yes -         no-reply@infinidat.com  -      

Testing an SMTP notification target

This command sends a test notification to an email recipient.

SNMP

Creating a new SNMP notification target

Define an SNMP trap to which the InfiniBox sends events. State the name and host and then select the version of the SNMP protocol.

For SNMP versions 1 and 2c you need to define a community. For SNMP version 3 you need to define an SNMP Engine ID and a user name.

You also need to select the user-based security model among authentication and privacy, authentication without privacy and no authentication and no privacy. Optionally, you may set the authentication type, and whether to encrypt the events and a private key.

An example for setting a notification target for SNMP versions 1 ans 2c:

config.notifications.snmp.define name=snmpv1-dest host=snmp version=1 community=infinidat

Examples for setting a notification target for SNMP version 3

Where the messages are unauthenticated and unencrypted:

config.notifications.snmp.define name=snmpv3-dest host=snmp version=3 engine_id=1 username=user1 security=NoAuthNoPriv

Where the messages are authenticated and not encrypted:

config.notifications.snmp.define name=snmpv3-dest host=snmp version=3 engine_id=1 username=user1 security=AuthPriv password=123456 auth_type=SHA priv_key=privatekey encryption=DES

Where the messages are authenticated and encrypted:

config.notifications.snmp.define name=snmpv3-authpriv host=snmp version=3 engine_id=1 username=user1 security=AuthPriv password=123456 auth_type=SHA priv_key=privatekey encryption=DES

Syslog

Creating a Syslog notification target

Define a syslog notification target by providing a host and a port. You can override the default UDP protocol with TCP. You can override the default Facility local7 with any other value between local0 and local7. In the following example, a target is defined with the default protocol and facility:

config.notifications.syslog.define name=target0 host=syslog
