    Alert - Notify when node powers on HELP


      Hi All,


      I'm a newbee to Solarwinds, and looking for a little help.

      Looking to create an alert that e-mails our team when a particular server (node) powers on.

      The server is intended to be powered off because it has old certs, and not ready for decom.


      I tried using to use the out of the box alert "Alert me when a group goes down" in reverse, but not getting the e-mails.


      1) Do I need to create a monitor instead of an alert?

      2) I've included the settings below, but not sure if this is my problem.


      Any input is appreciated.


      Name of alert:

      Alert when RootCA is turned ON

      Description of alert:

      This alert will write to the SolarWinds event log when RootCA turns on and when it comes back on again. ***RootCA is always supposed to be ALWAYS off***
