Monitor Server UP/Down using vRops ?

Hello, is it possible to have vROPs send out email alerts if a server (VM or Physical) goes down ?  We are trying to retire an old software suite that currently provides this functionality, and we wish to use vROPS.

Thanks

Yes, that's absolutely possible and is commonly done.

You will need to go to the Alerts tab > Notification Settings

From there you will need to setup a rule for your specific notificaiton.

Make sure you have your email plugin setup first though.

     (Administration > Management > Outbound Settings)
