Frequent, irrelevant email messages from HPE OneView


Email messages that do not pertain to certain recipients are sent to them.


The configuration for the email recipient contains a filter specification that allows unwanted, irrelevant alerts.

  1. As Infrastructure administrator (required privilege), follow the procedure in Edit an email recipient and filter entry to view the filter entries.
  2. Review the filter entries:
    1. Ensure that there are no empty filter entries. When the filter entry is empty, an email message is generated for any alert.
    2. Ensure that filter entries are unique. Otherwise, at least twice as many messages are sent.
    3. Be precise when specifying the filter criteria. Edit the filter entry so that it acts on only the alerts for which you want to be notified.
  3. Save the email recipient and filter entry.
  4. Verify the configuration by monitoring email notifications.
