Call Home on UCS uses the SMTP protocol to deliver messages to Cisco Smart Call Home servers for analysis.  This should not be confused with Smart Call Home notifications, which are sent from the Smart Call Home servers back to the customer's designated email contact.

When configuring Call Home on UCS, DO NOT add a real user’s email address to the CiscoTAC-1 profile.  This will cause the device to send many unfiltered  XML messages directly to that user.

The Cisco-TAC1 profile should contain the email address of either or a dedicated email address that is monitored by a Transport Gateway.  In the example below, Call Home is configured to send directly to Cisco at
