Virt. Center 2.5 Alarm Notification to multiple emails

Jump to solution

In using Virtual Center 2.5 and in setting up an alarm setting, how do you get the alarm email announcement sent to multiple email addresses? On the Action tab of Alarm Setting, and in the Value area for "Send a notification email" I can enter 1 email address but no more. I have tried separting the email address with commas and semi-colons but all I get is an error message indicating an invalid email address. How can you have a notification email sent to multiple email addresses?

Could you setup a distribution list on your mail server? Then just have virtual center send an e-mail to vmware@somedomain.com.

Yep. Use mail-enabled d-lists.

I also use distribution lists for this

Is there another solution to this problem? I am in situation where a distro list is not an option. We do nto have an email system setup, just an SMTP relay that sends notifications to multiple contractors who are employed by multiple companies. Currently the notifications are setup to send to two people but VC (2.5) will not let me make changes.

Disregard, I resolved the issue by adding a seperate action for each email address.

I had our groupwise admin create a distribution list which contains the emails of the people to be notified. I sent the message to the distribution list which forwards the emails to everyone in the list.

; or , are in the help file as separators..... Do not work.

As a workaround I setup individual actions with 1 address in ea.
