I need to customize alerts in vCenter6.5 u1 via vSphere web client.
We have (2) COLO-Datacenter and DR-site.
The Idea is when we receive the alert's we don't know where is coming from.
Happy New year!!!
Are you wanting to be able to be able to tell if an alert is generated in Colo separately from the DR site? Do you have a single vCenter for both sites or does each one have it's own vCenter? If you have two, the simple solution is to just create a different "from" address in the SMTP settings.
Pretty sure all you need to do is fill in the Mail Sender field with an address
Per the documentation, Configure Mail Sender Settings, the mail server is your SMTP server and the sender account is the email address of the sender. (Remember to use the full address, including domain name) So for your colo vCenter server, you might use vCenterfirstname.lastname@example.org and for the DR site use vCenter-DR@company.com
We have one standard email address [email@example.com]
Can we customize the Subject only Subject: [VMware vCenter - Alarm alarm.VmCPUUsageAlarm] alarm.VmCPUUsageAlarm changed status from Green to Red]?
