 Hello 

I am trying to configure email alerts on 9.9.1P8 version and tried to follow the article 
Configure alert settings (netapp.com)
However, seems to me it is not available anymore in system manager. 
Am I missing something?
Thank you

Yep. The EMS is for the onbox/cluster.   If you haven't done it already, I'd recommend deploying Unified Manager also,  it's very useful

(I saw your other post, but figured i'll comment here as well. )

 

Missing from the GUI?
and you are trying to configure Unified Manager, not System Manager, correct?  (9.9.1P8 sounds like you're in System Manager. )

yeah in sys manager. Figure out how to do that using my lovely cli 
Configure important EMS events to send email notifications (netapp.com)
Thank you 🙂

Can Unified Manager's alerting replace EMS alerting?

Augment is probably the better word.   Unified Manager allows for things like specific performance and capacity alerting.     It does the most common EMS items as well as customization in what you want to monitor.  It also allows for a single point to monitor EMS messages for Clusters in an environment.

In reality, will most of customers just use UM or use both UM and EMS alerting?

Depends.   But most that I've set up for customers and seen in the wild is a mix of both.

Systems get setup to alert on Error/critical.   either email or trap.  
UM will get set up with perf alerts, snapmirror reports, capacity reports/alerts etc.

does UM overrides EMS or they work as two different alert systems?

Separate.  Though UM will monitor EMS from clusters its connected too.   

 

EMS comes from the EMS system on the ONTAP box itself.    Anything from here basically - https://docs.netapp.com/us-en/ontap-ems-9111/pdfs/fullsite-sidebar/ONTAP_9_11_1_EMS_Reference.pdf 

 

Unified Manager has a lot more.
