Dell OpenManage Essentials, configuring Email Alerts in HTML format

  • Hi 

    We are running Version 2.1.0.2635 of Dell OpenManage Essentials.

    We are able to successfully configure email alerts which include the following syntax

    https://$n:1311

    or

    * Login to OME for more information and action as appropriate.
    URL is: https://domeserver.whatevs.com:2607/  * 

    however it seems these email are sent as text instead of html format so they recipient is unable to click on the hyperlinks.

    Does anyone know if there is an option somewhere where these alerts can be set to HTML?

    Thanks

  • Unfortunately not at this moment.

  • You should add  command parameter    -C Y  after  the -t prameter.

    D:\Program Files\Dell\SysMgt\Essentials\bin>sendmail.exe /?


    Usage: sendemail.exe -H <SMTPHost> -T <to_address> -F <from_address> -S "<subject>" -B "<body_message_txt>" -C Y/N

    Options:
    -H Set the SNMP Host Address for the sender.
    -T Set the recipients email address.
    Multiple email addresses can be added using ';' (without spaces)

    -F Set the Sender's email address.
    -S Set the Subject Line of the mail.
    -B Set the Body of the mail.
    -C Set contents of the mail as HTML or plain text. Y/N
    -? Help regarding parameters.

    Like this

    -t "yourname@youname.com" -f "alert@yourname.com" -s "This is alert" -b "<html><head><title>Alert</title></head><body>* Login to OME for more information and action as appropriate.<br/>
    URL is: <a href=' https://domeserver.whatevs.com:2607/'>  https://domeserver.whatevs.com:2607/</a></body></html>"  -C Y 

    OME doesn't support config HTML email directly, but we can use Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio to edit OME database. 

    You can find your stored action in table "dbo.EventStoredAction" of database "OMEssentials".

    Just edit "CmdLineArguments" column.

  • Excellent!  thanks for also letting us know where to make the change..  (was a bit lost..)
