I suppose that you have LMS installed on your server :)

You can configure a syslog server on your devices. This should be your LMS server.

You should configure the severity level for the syslog messages you want to send.


logging trap notifications ! the severity level

logging source-interface Vlan1 ! your mgmt-interface of the device

logging ! the logging server


Then you have to activate the traps on the device.

If you want to enable all traps, use


snmp-server enable traps


or if you only want to get config-messages you should use


snmp-server enable traps config-copy

snmp-server enable traps config

snmp-server enable traps config-ctid


Finally you can define an email-notification under

RME -> Tools -> Syslog -> Automated Actions

Select the sysylog messages " %SYS-5-CONFIG_I " and generate an email out of it.

I think that is not possible if you want it automatically.

You can look for differences between the old and the new config by using the config archive.

But I think that there is no way to send this differences by mail.
