Email Notification Setup

We have an ASA5550. What do you normally setup for Email notification? Do you setup Alerts, Notifications, Warnings, Emergency, Critical, etc.? Do these notifications also send to the Sys Log server in addition to the email notification?

Thanks.

Re: Email Notification Setup

Yes it will send logs to both syslog and Email. Also you can setup different sev levels.

here is an example for sending notifications to Email and syslog server :-

logging on

logging from myasa1@xyz.com

logging recipient-address admin@xyz.com

logging mail 3

smtp-server

logging host DMZ

--- setting a log sev-level is recommended, otherwise the mail server will be flooded. "logging mail 3" should be OK for Email notifications, sending only emergency, critical, alert and error logs only.

Also on the SMTP server, allow the ASA IP to send emails.

Re: Email Notification Setup

Thanks for your prompt response and information.

1. When I typed "logging host", I only got 3 choices: Inside, Outside, Management. So, I selected Inside

2. I typed your commands. However, when I typed Show Run, I got these statements instead. Do they mean the same thing as yours? I am running 7.1(2)

3. How do I test email notification? By the way, I have two SMTP servers.

logging enable

logging mail errors

logging from-address myasa1@xyz.com

logging recipient-address admin@xyz.com level errors

smtp-server 192.168.1.10 192.168.1.11

logging host Inside 192.168.1.1

Thanks.

Diane
