Mail from SAN Switch

Hi All,

Is there anyway to get a mail from SAN Switch?

For Example, I am automating a task and I need a mail once the task is been completed.

Regards,

Hello,

You can use scheduler feature from MDS to schedule a job and then e-mail it to you

switch(config)# scheduler job ?

  name  Specify a name for the job

switch(config)# scheduler ?

  aaa-authentication  Password for AAA authentication(of logged in user)

  job                 Define a job

  logfile             Scheduler log file configuration

  schedule            Define a schedule

  transport           Configure transport related configuration

switch(config)# scheduler transport email from ?

  WORD  Provide from email address, example: SJ-9500-1@xyz.com (Max Size 255)

Hi Vu Phan,

Thanks for the immediate reply. Under Configuration terminal I don't have the option of "transport". Please find the output of the scheduler help command.

switch(config)# scheduler ?

  aaa-authentication  Password for AAA authentication(of logged in user)

  job                 Define a job

  logfile             Scheduler log file configuration

  schedule            Define a schedule

I am trying to configure mail option in Cisco MDS 9100.

Shankar R.

I looked at the "transport" option on my switches but couldn't see it on 3.3 or 4 but it is on one our NX OS version 5 switches. So must be a new option in version 5.

Hi User 4444,

Thanks for updating me in this. I don't have version 5.0 CLI Guide.

I want to find other way to trigger a mail once the job is been done in my switch. If you get some idea please do share with me.

Thanks,

Shankar R

You could still use Scheduler but use "run-script" instead and have the script file on the bootflash: That runs after certain conditions for the job. We use Blat here to send emails to us but not from the Cisco MDS switches but from Window servers, so you will need to test it.

You can scheduler the MDS to connect to SCP, SFTP, TFTP, FTP, etc... and drop a file to a server.

This can be a Linux or Windows machine.  Then run another script on Linux/Windows to check for new file and if file is there, send it using blat.exe (which i have used before and it works great) or a mail client in linux to send mail.  They are both going to us SMTP to send mail (not mapi).
