Broadcasting Alerts About Status and Activity

You can set maxView Storage Manager to send status alerts about a specified system to all users who are logged into your storage space. You might want to do this if your storage space isn't managed by a dedicated person, or if that particular system is off-site or not connected to a monitor. Event alerts signal everyone working on the storage space that a system requires technical assistance.

When you set maxView Storage Manager to broadcast event alerts, all logged-in users receive messages about all types of events. In Windows, these alerts appear as pop-up messages; in all other operating systems, these alerts appear as console messages.

Note: Event alerts are independent of email notifications (see Notifying Users by Email About Status and Activity ).

To enable event alerts:

  1. In the Enterprise View, select a system.
  2. On the ribbon, in the System group, click System Settings.

    The Agent Settings window for that system opens.
  3. Click Broadcast Events to Logged-In Users, then click OK.
  4. Restart maxView Storage Manager to apply the change.
