Server Notification

When a monitored server component does not respond, the server monitor starts processing the instructions for notifying people in the organization. These instructions are set in the Notification property page.

Use the monitored server's Notification property page to see who has been notified and how. Use the server monitor's Notification property page to determine if the instructions are being processed correctly and to anticipate notifications if the problem continues. This page is read-only; it cannot be edited.

Getting to the Notification property page

  1. In the Administrator window, choose Monitors, and then choose a server monitor.
  2. From the Tools menu, choose Start Monitor.
  3. Type the name or browse for the server you want to connect to, and then choose OK.
  4. Double-click the server that you want, and then select the Notification tab.
