Trying to take advantage of custom ICX switch events from SZ 6.0.
I have setup a few TextPattern custom events and enabled the EMAIL event management for the different severities.
Emails have been tested coming from SmartZone and it works.
I am wondering how SZ can receive these TextPatterns and recognize them so that an email alert can be sent out.
Example: if I manually disable POE on a port, on ICX, I see the following:
Nov 24 14:03:42:I:System: PoE: Power disabled on port 1/1/4 because of admin off.
So I create a TextPattern to look at PoE: Power disabled on port
I don't get anything...
Do I need to set SZ as a logging host on ICX?
SIDE NOTE: I have realized now that when I create a TextPattern and it contains uppercase letters, after you save it, it brings everything lowercase. This may be my issue because it does not match the text exactly.
EDIT: even if i type in lowercase text that matches the log output of ICX, I don't get an event generated....therefore no email notification
