We use Ciscoworks for many email alert monitors today, and want to enable a new email monitor for our Cisco 4948's and 6500's that experience spanning-tree topology changes. Anyone point me in the right direction on finding where I enable this?

Thanks in advance

DFM will pass through the newRoot and topologyChange traps from switches. These will appear as major and minor alarms respectively. Given that, you could define a DFM Notification Group to send Major and Minor Alarm events as email messages. Just make sure the switches are sending bridge traps to the DFM server, then configure the Notification Group under DFM > Notification Services > Notification Groups.
