Gen8 MicroServer -- iLO4 Management - AlertMail

Recommended Posts

Joe_Miner

I'm not sure I understand what it is referring to in the AlertMail Settings by the Term Sender Domain.

 

In trying to Enable iLO AlertMail it asks for:

 

Email Address

Sender Domain

SMTP Port

SMTP Server

The ILO forms the from address by using <HOSTNAME>@<SENDER DOMAIN>

 

The option threw me off at first, as it would typically be the same as the domain name under network settings, but they have provided the option to give an alternate domain name if it conflicts with your email server.

 

So if your ILO's hostname is MX12345678 and you place a sender domain of "mycompany.com". ILO will generate the from address as MX12345678@mycompany.com

You can have a lot of fun with stuff like this JM. You can substitute almost anything for the Domain: e.g. MyServerScrewedUp.Again :)

Good topic! I am working on the same thing. When my server was in the lab at work, iLo used the mail server in the lab to communicate. At home I don't use a mail server. I know there are email forwarding services and some isp's will work with iLo. Hopefully, some others have come up with solutions.

Does iLO allow for non-standard ports for SMTP? Many ISPs don't allow outbound port 25 but, if iLO will let you specify alternate ports, you likely could get it to work with your own ISP.

I got distracted, I should be able to put a little time in this week.

Gmail appears to allow relay, but only for a business account.

Typically this sort of thing is meant to go to an internal mail server.  If you have it go directly to an internet mail server you'll need to be careful.  You're treading on "spammer" territory.  The server's just going to connect to the server you put in on the port you specifiy and say "HELO" (that's not a typo), Im "<servername>@<domain.com>" and I want to send an email to "<user>@<otherdomain.com>" .  No authentication or anything.  If the receiving server isn't ok with that, it decides you're a spammer and error's out.

 

As you say above, google or other services may allow relay for "business" or hosted accounts, but the idea here is if you're doing business with them for "mydomain.com".  In this instance, they know you own "mydomain.com", so if your server connects to them and says "Im <servername>@<mydomain.com>" then they don't treat that as a spammer.

Did anyone find a way round this?

 

Even my old DNS 2 bay NAS has the option for username and password so I can send the alerts from that through my ISPs SMTP mail server...

      As I have decided to make some improvements on my afermarket fan controller I am trying to try implementing thermal control or mobo PWM control of additional fans, but before that I'm in a great need to inderstand how much fan count the controller should be ready to support. As this forum doesn't support polls I have nothing to do but ask you to reply on this topic.
       
      What I would be thankful to know:
      1. How many fans have you installed in your Microserver.
      2. What fans do you use (size, 3/4-pin connector) and where are they located, also what are they cooling.
      3. What way do you power these fans?
       
      Thank you in advance for your feedback!

      Hi everyone.
       
      New to this forum.
      I have a gen8 microserver running at home, where I have installed an SSD in the ODD sata slot. On the SSD I have installed Ubuntu Server 18.04.
      I have then created a logical volume witht the raid controller and can then boot to the SSD. So far so good.
      My problem emerges when I reboot the system. The logical volume disapears and it gives the error: "boot logical drive is configured but is missing or offline".
      I then have to go into the utility and reconfigure the logical volume. Kind of annoying, when trying to run a headless setup.
