But i am wondering why i am getting the following messages in the email notification.

EVENT DESCRIPTION = Authentication Failure:MinorAlarm;

I have not selected the Authentication failure from the list and also it does not exist there..

I have this problem too.

Authentication Failure falls under the MinorAlarm event. Please provide a screenshot of your notification group configuration.

You've selected Informational under Alerts in your Notification group, so this explains why you're seeing the MinorAlarm. What you should do is uncheck everything under the Alert configuration, and just keep the events. Events are more useful anyway when it comes to notifications as they contain the atomic problems.

So you mean i dont need to select anything under the alert configuration and just keep the events ,will it give me the information about things which i have checked in the group B for the access switches..

I actually want only information which i have checked..
