Nexus 5K Callhome

Unanswered Question
Jun 19th, 2012

Hi Folks,

Is it possible to determine what the subject field of a callhome message generated by a Nexus 5548 (using the command '

callhome test inventory') will be?



I have this problem too.

From the config guide:

Call Home provides e-mail-based notification of  critical system events. Nexus 5000 Series switches provide a range of  message formats for optimal compatibility with pager services, standard  e-mail, or XML-based automated parsing applications. You can use this  feature to page a network support engineer, e-mail a Network Operations  Center, or use Cisco Smart Call Home services to automatically generate a  case with the Technical Assistance Center.

here is the link:

I tested "callhome test inventory" and here is the subject of the email I received.

Subject: System Notification from 24.10.5020B.1 - inventory:full - 2012-06-20 02:46:47 GMT-00:00 On-demand full inventory
