iDRAC7 - how to enable all email alerts via racadm ?

With the iDRAC7 there are 14 "pages" of alerts.

I would like to enable the email checkbox for each of these alerts using racadm.  Normally I figure out how to do this by saving the entire config to file (racadm getconfig -f file.txt) but it doesn't appear that these alert options are saved to file.

Any ideas?

My goal is to be able to standardize all the DRAC7 configs across our enterprise.

You can run below racadm command to enable email for all alerts. While running this command you might get an error saying "ERROR: Few alert settings have failed". This is because E-mail is not supported for all the alerts.

 racadm eventfilters set -c idrac.alert.all -n email

Run below command to get more help on this command

racadm help eventfilters set

Thanks

I've found that you need to specify an action (-a) or you'll get an error on iDrac7:

racadm eventfilters set -c idrac.alert.all -a none -n email
