Hi Brian,

Try DFM -> Administration -> Fault Notification -> Mail Notifier.

This will forward the DFM alarms to you.

Hope that helps.

Hi Brian,

what IDU do you use for DFM.

Latest should be 1.2.10.

Here is the download link: http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/cw2000-dfm

Please have a look in Server Configuration - About the server - Applications and versions for that.

Best regards,

No alarms are sent via email until this functionality is configured in Mail Notifier (as was said). The simplest way of configuring the Mail Notifier will send all alarms via email, but this may not be desired. For advanced configutation, you will need to modify mail_notify.conf manually. If you do end up modifying this file, be very careful with the contents. A syntax error will break notifications.

The first reply on this thread answered number 1. As for number 2, sending all alarms as emails may be overkill. Many users only care to receive certain alarms as email notifications.

If you need further help you will need to provide more details as to what you mean by "configured the ciscoworks DFM."

Re: email DFM alarm automatically ?

Hi Brian,

have a look in "DFM Administration Console -> Edit -> Polling and Thresholds"

On the left pane you see the Groups (intersesting might be the Interface or Port Groups) on the right pane the settings for the group.

In the tab "Matching Criteria" have a look to the criteria which might be interesting for your task.

Before experiment with the settings: have on the left pane a reight click on a group (e.g. Interface Group) and choose copy. So you can copy all of the group settings.

After settings change do not forget to recomute the codebook!

For more information have a look here.
