    how to generate remote sound alert

      we know Orion alert can generate sound alert in system manager.

      and if my orion server located in the remote IDC, then I want to listen the sound alert in another monitor office.

      how should I do?

          Hi Eric



          Please See below from the Orion administrators Guide.There are also many posts on thwack on the same issue .I have listed a few below


          Configuring Audible Web Alerts

          When browsing the Orion Web Console, audible alerts can be sounded whenever new alerts are generated. When enabled, you will receive an audible alert the first time, after login, that an alert is displayed on the page. This alert may come from either an alert resource or the Alerts view. You will not receive audible alerts if the Alerts view or the alert resource you are viewing is empty.

          Following the initial alert sound, you will receive an audible alert every time an alert is encountered that was triggered later than the latest alert that has already been viewed. For example, a user logs in and sees a group of alerts with trigger times ranging from 9:01AM to 9:25AM, and the user receives an audible alert. If the user browses to a new page or allows the current page to auto-refresh, a new alert sounds if and only if an alert triggered later than 9:25AM is then displayed.

          To enable audible web alerts:

          1. Log in to the Orion Web Console as an administrator.

          2. Click Admin in the top menu bar, and click Account Manager from the left pane menu.

          3. Select the account that you want to configure, and then click Edit.

          4. Select the sound file you want to play when new alerts arrive from the Alert Sound list, and then Click Done.
