Hello,

I believe you are looking to configure Cisco Callhome.

You may use Cisco Fabric Manager to configure callhome, and here is a 
doc that talks about it step-by-step -
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/mds9000/sw/5_0/configuration/guides/sy
smgnt/fm/call.html
The following link talks about configuring callhome, in detail, if you want to use the command line interface, instead - http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/mds9000/sw/5_0/configuration/guides/sy
smgnt/nxos/call.html#wp1393543
Here is an example - callhome    contract-id <>    customer-id <>    switch-priority 2    email-contact <>    phone-contact <>    streetaddress <>    destination-profile full_txt email-addr <>    destination-profile short_txt email-addr <>    destination-profile xml email-addr callhome@cisco.com    no destination-profile full_txt alert-group all    destination-profile full_txt alert-group environmental    no destination-profile short_txt alert-group all    destination-profile short_txt alert-group environmental    transport email smtp-server port 25    transport email from <>    transport email reply-to <>    enable    no periodic-inventory notification    periodic-inventory notification interval 30 Thanks, Arun
