The following example describes how to set up a notification task that causes HP Systems Insight Manager to send an e-mail that can then be forwarded to a BlackBerry, cellphone (for example, SMS), and other paging interface applications whenever the central management server (CMS) receives a Critical, Major, or Minor event.

To create the task:

  1. Select OptionsEventsAutomatic Event HandlingNew Task. The Automatic Event Handling - New Task page is displayed.

  2. In the Task name field, enter a name for the task, such as Important Events for e-mail-Pager Task.

  3. Click [Next]. The Select events section is displayed. Refer to Searching for Systems and Events - Searching for Events for more information on selecting event criteria.

  4. In the first selection box (criteria selection), select severity.

  5. In the second selection box (comparison selection), select is.

  6. In the third selection box (value selection), select Critical.

  7. Click [Add] to add the Major and Minor severities to the task.

  8. Repeat steps 4 through 6, and in the third selection box, select Major and Minor.

  9. Click [Next]. The Select systems section is displayed. For more information on selecting system criteria, refer to Searching for Systems and Events - Searching for Systems.

  10. In the first selection box (criteria selection), select system name.

  11. In the second selection box (comparison selection), select is.

  12. In the third selection box (value selection), select (any).

  13. Click [Next]. The Select actions section is displayed.

  14. Select Send e-mail.

  15. In the To address field, fill in the e-mail address to which you want the notification sent (multiple addresses can be added so that a group is notified). A CC address can be added too so that a manager or supervisor is also notified.

  16. In the Subject field, enter your subject, for example, HP Systems Insight Manager Events.

  17. In the Message Format section, change the option to Pager/SMS. This option sends a condensed e-mail format that is similar to a Paging Task in HP Systems Insight Manager, which is the ideal way to send alerts to a BlackBerry or cellphone type of hardware (or when TAPI is not available and an E-mail-to-Paging provider is being used).

  18. Click [Next]. The Select time filter section is displayed.

  19. Select Use time filter and select Nights and Weekends, unless you want to receive the e-mail 24 hours per day. If so, clear Use time filter. Refer to Using Tasks - Applying a Time Filter for more information on time filters.

  20. Click [Next]. The Review summary is displayed.

  21. Click [Prev] if you must make changes, or click [Finish] to save the task.

When using time filters, you can use on-call style e-mails or pages. If you want one person to be notified during business hours and another at night, create two different tasks and set the time filter appropriately.

This same type of task configuration can be applied to a Paging Task to use a modem in the HP Systems Insight Manager server to page through a BlackBerry or alpha-numeric pager.
