Create Notification Recipients in Operations Manager 2007 SP1

Updated: November 25, 2008

Applies To: Operations Manager 2007 SP1

A recipient is the user that receives the notification message. In Operations Manager 2007, there are three ways to define recipients: by list, membership, or subscription.

Compiling a list manually is the most straightforward way to define notification recipients. Use this approach if the list of recipients does not change. A less labor-intensive method to use is group membership. You can use group membership to determine who receives notification messages. Additionally, Active Directory accounts can store all contact information, including e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, and pager information. With Active Directory integration, Operations Manager 2007 is automatically informed of any change to the contact information of an account.

This procedure demonstrates how administrators configure recipients for e-mail notifications. A notification recipient defines when and from what devices notifications can be sent. You must first enable a notification channel before performing this procedure. After this procedure is complete you must create a notification subscription that defines the format of the notification message and any filters such as age or severity of the alert.

To create a notification recipient (as an administrator)

  1. Log on to the computer with an account that is a member of the Operations Manager Administrators role for the Operations Manager 2007 management group.

  2. In the Operations console, click the Administration button.

  3. In the Administration pane, expand Notifications, right-click Recipients, and then click New Notification Recipient.

  4. On the General tab, type a display name for this recipient. If you want to schedule when notifications should be sent, click Only send notifications during specified times and create a date range.

  5. Click the Notification Devices tab.

  6. Start the Create Notification Device Wizard by clicking the Add button.

  7. Expand the Notification channel drop-down list, and then click E-mail.

  8. In the Your address for the selected channel box type an e-mail address. For example, type e-mail@contoso.com. This is the e-mail address that is listed in the From box of each e-mail message that is sent to notification recipients.

  9. On the Schedule page, you can leave the default schedule or you set a schedule that applies only to this notification, and then click Next.

  10. On the General page, type a name for this notification device, and then click Finish.

  11. Click Add to define another notification device. Otherwise click OK.

  12. The new recipient displays in the Recipients pane.

To create a notification recipient (as a non-administrator)

    noteNote
    When you run the Operations console on a computer that is not a management server, the Connect to Server dialog box displays. In the Server Name text box, type the name of the Operations Manager 2007 management server that you want the Operations console to connect to.

  2. In the Operations console, click Tools in the top menu bar, and then click My recipient information.

  3. On the General tab, your current log in name is displayed. If you want to schedule when notifications should be sent, click Only send notifications during specified times and create a date range.
