I am trying to setup a UDT alert to email me when a new MAC address appears into network. What is the trigger condition I need to use to get the alert to work? When I use the test feature, I get a test email, but I don't seem to be getting an email when a new MAC appears on the network. I assume that my trigger condition is wrong. It is currently set to is NewMac equal to 0. thanks.
I do not see this as an option for us under the alert names. I clicked the "Alert Manager" and I do not see this as an option. Anyone have the settings so that I can generate this new?
Because that was the old alert manager. The screenshot is from a time the alert manager needs to be run on the server as it is a 32 bit Application. Now it should be done via the web console.
It looks different but runs on the same logic. Furthermore, the new MAC address alert is a canned alert. You just have to activate it and modify the alert actions.
In UDT 3.1, NodeID variable is renamed to DeviceID in both New MAC and Rogue MAC Alert. Please edit the Trigger action with DeviceID variable and check for the data.
Go to Start -> Programs -> SolarWinds Orion -> Alerting, Reporting and Mapping -> Advanced Alert Manager
Click Configure Alerts
Select "Alert me when a new MAC address appears on network" and choose Edit
Under Trigger Condition, choose "Trigger Alert when all of the following apply" and set it to "is NewMac is equal to 1"
Under the Trigger Acctions tab, create a new action to email you. This is where you can add the variables to put into the email you get.
Hi Mike - the trigger condition should be equal to 1.
When connecting a new MAC - are you sure that it wasn't connected before? UDT can remember MAC for a half of year easily...
Changed it to 1 and it worked! Another question, are there any variables I can add so the email will tell me what switch and port the new MAC is connected to? Thanks!
Have there been any updates on this? I'm looking at this same problem where I would like more information on a rogue MAC. I'm also looking at pulling in more information from Custom Properties into the email as well and would need the NodeID portion to work for that to happen.
