Using HP Openview to send email notifications for node outages

Using HP Openview to send email notifications for node outages

(OP)
I'm attempting to try to setup a email notification from Openview, but I don't where to start....I can I setup HP Openview to send me or a group of users email notifications when a node goes down for more than 5 minutes. Does HP Openview have it's own MTA or will it use Sun's MTA(sendmail).

RE: Using HP Openview to send email notifications for node outages

I generally just use a script that calls a facility like mailx to send the mail. There may be a more elegant way to do it but that works.

RE: Using HP Openview to send email notifications for node outages

i use Perl and either the MIME::Lite or Net::SMTP package, depending if you need to include links (MIME) or not (Net). With the Windows port of OV, Perl is included, so it's really easy to use. . .

RE: Using HP Openview to send email notifications for node outages

Included but with no modules to speak of which is most annoying... I have auto installation routines for the NET::* modules now.
