I have installed TNM on a windows server 2012 and I want to send e-mail notifications to a specific e-mail account when a monitor goes red. But it won't send it. I don't have any e-mail account configured on the server. But I have placed the e-mail settings on TNM options for the e-mail account.


On another computer that I have the particular e-mail account configured for sending and recieving e-mails in MS Outlook, it sends the e-mail alert when I configure it in TNM as the sender/recipient. All works normally there.


Why is this not happening on the server also? I have the same settings on the Options of TNM on the server as it is on the workstation that is running by the way windows 7.


I have to install MS Outlook on the server too and configure the e-mail account there so TNM can send the e-mail notifications or is there another solution for this to work?


Thank you very much and I'm waiting for your response.




ps. Sorry for bad English...

Please let us know the email settings you use for this action and in Options-Email. Send us a screenshot if possible. Also let us know the result message displayed in the actions log.

Sorry if you'd have preferred a new thread - but reopening this as I seem to have the same issue? I've installed and have a monitor set up to watch a service; which correctly goes red if I stop the service. I've added an email alert, which when I click the "Test" button on the actions dialog correctly sends an email alert. However, if I stop the service no alert gets sent.





This config works fine when...



...I hit the test button when setting up the monitor - and the action is enabled.





The event is fired correctly.



I note there's suspiciously nothing logged here.

Ok perhaps I've worked out part of the problem - in the "Has development stopped thread" Alex mentioned that the "time(s) in a row" option actually means "after x time(s) in a row". Dropping this after my post to 1 and the alert started being sent. However; before looking in to this problem the service had been down almost 24 hours without any alert having been sent so there's something not right somewhere but atm I can't repeat the problem and am working so... thx for reading  :rolleyes: ...
