Add and Remove Alert Notifications

CA ARCserve Backup lets you configure notifications Alert notifications for non-job related events (for example, starting and stopping the Tape Engine and the successful completion of operations) using the Server Admin Manager.

The procedure that follows describes how to add Alert notifications for non-job related events.

To add alert notifications

  1. Open the CA ARCserve Backup Server Admin Manager.

    Click the CA ARCserve Backup primary server or stand-alone server in the directory tree, and then click Configuration on the toolbar.

    The Configuration dialog opens.

  2. Click the Alert tab.

    In the Alert list field, enter the text for the event for which you want to receive an Alert notification.

    You can enter a complete phrase, or only a part of it (even a single keyword). The Alert engine tries to match the keyword or phrase to the text of each generated event. However, you should be as specific as possible, in order to avoid receiving unwanted Alert notifications.

    Examples:

  3. Click Add to add the search text.
  4. Click OK.

    When the text of an event matches one of the keywords you have entered, the Alert engine generates Alert notifications for all recipients previously configured using the Alert Manager.

The procedure that follows describes how to remove Alert notifications.

To remove Alert notifications

  1. Open the CA ARCserve Backup Server Admin Manager.

    Click the CA ARCserve Backup primary server or stand-alone server in the directory tree, and then click Configuration on the toolbar.

    The Configuration dialog opens.

  2. Click the Alert tab.

    From the Alert list, click the event for which you no longer want to receive Alert notifications, and then click Delete.

    The Alert notification is deleted.

    Note: To delete all Alert notifications from the Alert list, click Delete All.

  3. Click OK to close the Configuration dialog.
