Managing Email Alerts

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

You can turn the alerts off, changes their addresses, or switch email servers.

The OEM adapter can send email alerts any time that it encounters an error. Manage the emails with the following XML elements in the OEMAdapter.exe.config file.

  1. To stop email alerts entirely comment out the reference to the SmtpAppender like this:
    <appender-ref ref="RollingFileAppender"></appender-ref>
    <!-- <appender-ref ref="SmtpAppender"></appender-ref> -->
    (The character sequence <!-- starts an XML comment, and the sequence --> closes the comment.)
    Tip: Using this technique is preferable to deleting this line entirely, as this can be easily reversed if you decide to reinstate email alerts in future. Notice that, depending on the configuration you saved, there may be other elements between the <appender-ref> tags.
  2. To reconfigure the email alerts, locate the <appender> element, and modify three of its child elements by changing the example values shown in italics here:
    <appender name="SmtpAppender" type="log4net.Appender.SmtpAppender">
       <to value=""></to>
       <from value=""></from>
       <subject value="OEM Adapter Error"></subject>
       <smtpHost value=""></smtpHost>
  3. Save the amended configuration file.
