Openmange Essentials SMS Alerts

Hello,

Is SMS text alerting is built in to the OME application? I am able to use the email alert functionality and input the email address for my mobile number and receive the alerts.

I do not see the option in the application but need to verify.

Thanks for any and all information!

Hi Mike, thanks for the post.

The way we support that is to create an email forward rule in the Alert console and use something like this:

SMS / Text - 10digitphonenumber@txt.att.net

Other providers have similar.

Let me know if this works for you.

Thanks,

Rob

Hi Rob, Thanks for the response. Would you have a link to an article showing how to set up an email forward rule? I basically cloned our email alert and input my 10digitphonenumber@txt.att.net

But if you have a better way, I'm all for it.

Thanks again, much appreciated!

Yep.

There is a 'custom alerts' video on www.delltechcenter.com/ome.  That may help.

You can also right click and create a new email action.

Thanks!

Thanks for the link, but I can't seem to select the video for play, no link to click on?

Yeah, those videos have "hotspots", you have to hover over the plus sign I think.  Most new-ish browsers work ok with this.  Let me know.

RE: Openmange Essentials SMS Alerts

For sms you need to send an email to your telcom sms gateway which converts the email to sms and sends it to your phone so as far as DRAC is concerned you are just sending an email.

Here is a global list of providers gateway syntax:
