Operations Manager mail relay host?

Does DFM use the local MTA installed on the system to transport mail? I find that it is not the case, as my Postfix relayhost is correctly configured, however DFM says this:

May 08 10:34:04 [dfmeventd:ERROR]: alarm 2, event 4821: failed to deliver email alert xxxx@xxxx.edu

How can I set a relayhost for DFM?

Thank you

Re: Operations Manager mail relay host?

I'm pretty sure you just put the mail host within the standard setup options of DFM. For a local relay it depends whether it'll respond to "localhost" or if you need to use the FQDN of the localhost.

Re: Operations Manager mail relay host?

I was able to set the option (thank you) but now it looks like DFM does not set a  "from" envelope header:

May  8 14:27:02 pandora postfix/smtpd[20694]: 27A493F6E: client=xxx
May  8 14:27:02 pandora postfix/cleanup[20735]: 27A493F6E: message-id=<xxxx>
May  8 14:27:02 pandora postfix/qmgr[4483]: 27A493F6E: from=<>, size=1371, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
May  8 14:27:02 pandora postfix/smtp[20736]: 27A493F6E: to=<xxxxx>, relay=xxxxx, delay=0, status=bounced (host xxxxx] said: 571 Domain does not accept delivery report messages (in reply to RCPT TO command))

Is there any way to populate this FROM header?

Re: Operations Manager mail relay host?

Within OM, you can set FROM in the GUI.

Setup -> Events and Alerts -> "From field in email and page alerts" You can also set the mail server here.

Re: Operations Manager mail relay host?

By default, DataFabric Manager uses the local system name in the email from address and web links present in alert e-mail messages sent.To change it use 

the following command.

$ dfm option set localHostName=<name>

Re: Operations Manager mail relay host?

hi sean,

     which version of dfm are you talking about?

There is no such GUI page as you mention from 3.4.1 till 3.7.1 AFAIK.

I think you are meaning the Alarms page under setup ?

Still they dont have the options to change the from address of email.

thanks

Sean

     I got which page you are referring to.

thanks to shailaja for pointing.

"Setup -> Options --> Events and Alerts --> From field in email and page alerts"

Thanks

Re: Operations Manager mail relay host?

Just can confirm that this is where I set smtp server & from address as well....never had any problems with it.

Re: Operations Manager mail relay host?

Thanks Adaikkappan,

   My relay was configured correctly but would not work until I set the localhostname using your commands above.

     - It was previously blank

eg:

C:\Users\admin.c>dfm option set localhostname=NetappDFMServer

Note: "NetappDFMServer" is an arbitrary name that is not used anywhere.

Cheers, have a great day

- Chris.
