Multiple SMTP server integration with Nagios XI/NLS

Postby lukedevon » Sun Jul 14, 2019 10:22 pm

Hi

As I got to know from all my clients, they are looking for a solution to integrate NagiosXi alerts with another SMTP server, as they have different use cases. Hence, as I understood, it is necessary to allow multiple SMTP servers integration in NagiosXI ( 2 SMTP servers are enough).

May I know, is this doable? Can you implement this as a new feature?

Many Thanks,
Luke.

For clarification, are you trying for redundancy (if the first fails, try the second) or for relaying the same email through two different servers (email sent to 2 different email systems)?

In XI it also depends on whether or not you are using XI's notification handler or using the backend postfix/sendmail relaying functionality.

in Admin > Email Settings are you using Sendmail or SMTP?

Hi ,

I am referring to same alerts relaying two different smtp servers. I want to use SMTP.

Thank you
Luke.

Ok, yeah, the functionality to send to multiple simulataneously doesn't exist, the developers would need to add it, I've created a feature request here:

Code: Select all
FR: XI - Add the ability to send to multiple SMTP servers (not just failover, but the ability to send a single email through multiple SMTP servers (so 2 emails)).
