How to Alert on New Node or Down Node xx days?

How to Alert on New Node or Down Node xx days?

How to Alert on New Node or Down Node xx days?

I'm not an Openview expert, neither is our openview expert...    

We have NNM...

I'm looking for a way to receive emails when a new node shows up on the network, and if possible when a node is down for xx days.

Is there a simple way to do this?

RE: How to Alert on New Node or Down Node xx days?

Try to use the EVENT CONFIGURATION under Options in NNM. Everytime NMM receives the traps you configured under Event Configuration it will forward email to you. Just be sure you filled-up the "Command for Automatic Action (Opotional)" field.

I normally put this under the Command field:
echo "Message in your email" | mailx <email add>
