scheduled report created but not send via email

EOINDICKSONRBS

Hi,

I've installed OnCommand/DFM v5.0.2. I'm trying to schedule a report through the Reports tab. The report gets created ( can see it in Program Files/Netapp/Datafabric Manager/DFM/Reports on the server) and I get an email from DFM Manager saying "scheduled report ran successfully" (I've set up my account to receive all warning level alerts) but I never get the email containing the report. I entered the same email address when scheduling the report as I have when setting myself up to receive alerts. What am I missing ?

Many thanks,

Eoin

Are you seeing any error in your dfmscheduler.log or dfmserver.log ? with respect to the scheduled email ?

Hi,

I can't find a file called dfmscheduler.log.

In dfmserver.log I see "Created schedule..." at the time I scheduled the report. The only error I see in that file is  around once a day it is saying "could not open directory: c:/program files/netapp/datafabric manager/DFM/dataExport".

There are no errors in DFMEvent.log

Thanks,

Eoin

Hi Eoin,

Are you able to share the report...? If you able to share the report then can you share the output of "dfm report schedule designer list/detail" command.

Hi Eoin,

Can you run dfm report schedule designer detail CLI and confirm the  e-mail address listed there for the reports ?

Thanks for your replies. Here's what I get - the email addresses are correct. Like I said, we get the information event email to say the report schdule ran successfully we just never get the report emailed to us.

What about sharing the report..? Are you getting the email after sharing the report..? Can you share a report and let me know either you are getting the email or not .

Gireesh

Re: scheduled report created but not send via email

EOINDICKSONRBS

Sorry, I had not tried sharing the report. That helps, as I am getting "Unable to share the report: Could not zip and email. Please refer dfm and dfmserver logs for more detailed information."

In dfm.log I am seeing "Could not email the report output... Reason:Checking Mailing Server configuration". Is there another place I need to enter the mail server details ?

Re: scheduled report created but not send via email

agireesh

Could you please provide the output of "dfm option list | findstr /-i smtp" command. I just want to know whether you gave valid SMTP server or not.

Also, may I know how many records you have in report...? Are you able to share the report which have very less records.

Regards,

Gireesh

Re: scheduled report created but not send via email

EOINDICKSONRBS

The command gives -

SMTPServerBackup

SMTPServerName                        gbedftsexm301

SMTPServerPort                        25

gbedftsexm301 is the name of our mailhost.

I'm not sure what you mean by how many record I have in report. I tried to share tjhe simplest report I could see, storage capacity/capacity/storage systems which should have only 2 lines but I still get the error.

Re: scheduled report created but not send via email

agireesh

Is your SMTP server ("gbedftsexm301") is pingable from

- machine where dfm is installed.

- machine where you want the email for report.

If above things are working fine then please check that all the dfm services are ups and running using dfm service list.

I have sown this error, virify that that the route between DFM and your mail server is open. Contact your Network Administrator.


Go to Setup==> options==>Events and Alerts to verify this informations and give them to your network administrator.


Goud luck.

Re: scheduled report created but not send via email

EOINDICKSONRBS

Hi, yes, the machine is pingable and if I go to Alarms - manage alarms - Test I get the email from DFM Manager.

Using the "dfm service list" command all the services say "unable to connect to service control manager". If I look at the services through Windows Server manager they are all Started.

Re: scheduled report created but not send via email

agireesh

Hi Eoin,

All setting looks fine and you are also getting the alert email. Another possibility can be, you have a antivirus or firewall installed in your machine which is not allow to send the email with attachment. From DFM side all setting are fine only you need to check that you are able to send the email with attachment from the machine where DFM server is installed.

If possible, you can write perl script to send a email with attachment from the machine where dfm is installed and verify that whether you are able to send the email with attachment or not.

Re: scheduled report created but not send via email

EOINDICKSONRBS

You got it. The virus scanner only allows certain processes to send mail and I needed to have dfm.exe and dfmserver.exe added to the list of processes. Now I am receiving the reports via email. How frustrating.

Thanks for your help with this.

Thats, a good catch gireesh. Probably we should have an FAQ on this.
