Hardware alerts

Hello,

Does somebody know if the HPCA starter edition is able to e-mail hardware alerts?

I know that the hp client manager (altiris) is able to e-mail the alerts. And I need to choose between these 2 tools.

Thanks!

Re: Hardware alerts

If I look at the specs of both tools they have the feature: HP hardware alerts.

So if you have the agent installed at a certain device and something is wrong with the hardware, you will be notified.

I know out of experience that the HP client manager is able to show the alert in a console but is also capable of send the alert through email.

The only thing I want to know if the same functionality is available within the HP client automation starter.

Hello,
Yes it is possible to send email alerts for events like hardware problems. The Mail server needs to be set up in the Configuration Server. Please look at the MGR_SMTP_MAIL section in the Configuration Server User Guide.

Are you talking about the HP client Automation Starter Edition?

Hello,
This may not be as easy to implement in the Started edition as it is in the Enterprise.
