Autosupport: We cannot receive any notification

Hi everyone,

There's no output or we cannot receive any notifcations after doing the command options autosupport.doit. We've tried to change the transport to smtp or https but still no output.

version of the ONTAP is 8.2.2.RC1 7 mode.

Thanks for the help.

Re: Autosupport: We cannot receive any notification

Can you ping the smtp server?

please paste the output of the following commands:

options autosupport

autosupport history show

Re: Autosupport: We cannot receive any notification

- Are you using an HTTP proxy?

- Are the correct IPs set to allow SMTP relay?

Maybe attach output of /etc/rc and /etc/hosts as well to build off of the recommendation by DOMINIC.WYSS.

yes we can ping the smtp server.

Re: Autosupport: We cannot receive any notification

You have to ask E-Mail administrator to investigate why E-Mail server rejects mails from NetApp. There is very little that can be done from NetApp side here. I vaguely remember that some versions had problems with Exchange, but again - you need to gather information from mail server first.

Re: Autosupport: We cannot receive any notification

the config looks ok to me.

I think the mailserver does not allow you to send mail (relaying). this has to be configured by the mailadmin.

aborzenkov is right, there was an Ontap version which had an issue with Exchange. this has been fixed about two years ago. I hope you don't have such an old Ontap version

Re: Autosupport: We cannot receive any notification

Thanks for the reply.

Actually they have an old netapp in FAS2020 wherein the config for autosupport is the same with the new netapp FAS2552. We can recieve notification from the old netapp thats why we are confuse why is that the new netapp cannot send an autosupport notification.

Re: Autosupport: We cannot receive any notification

Hi

We had a similar issue a few months ago.

Assume you've checked the obvious, that your mail server has the filer whitelisted as an SMTP sender.

In our case, after a lot of faffing around, a reboot of the filer fixed it. The consensus seemed to be the email daemon within OnTap had died. One the few times when I've found NetApp support less than fantastic, no one I spoke to (and we a very premium support) was able to offer a definitive method to diagnose this was the issue at the time or suggest a remedy other than rebooting.

Re: Autosupport: We cannot receive any notification

When you say an old 2020 and the 2250 has the same configuration, do you mean that the 2250 now has the same IPs as the previous 2020, or are both systems still up and running right now (each with different IPs)?

Re: Autosupport: We cannot receive any notification

Systems are both up but with different IP's.  The client decided to still up the old netapp so that he can play around with it and check some configuration.

But the users are connected with the new netapp. Do you think that's a problem having the 2 netapp with same configuration but different IP's. Because they are experiencing a heavy traffic in the network also.
