Mail notification (E-mail alarms)

The Exinda SD-WANSoftware-Defined Wide Area Network supports sending of email alarms to a specified address when a serious event occurs. A “serious” event is defined by a WANWide Area Network interface going down or coming back up without manually enabling or disabling the WAN interface.

To configure email alarms:

  1. Go to the Admin tab.
  2. Click the status for Mail Notification, which is either Disabled or Enabled.
  3. Enter the email address and the IPInternet protocol address of the SMTPSimple Mail Transfer Protocol server in the pop-up window to receive the alarms. Typically, this is the SMTP server on the Exinda SD-WAN LANLocal area network.

In order to test the configuration, a WAN interface can be manually brought down and up again by disconnecting the cable from an active WAN interface which triggers an email alarm to be sent to the designated address and server.
