This procedure details the steps needed for an administrator to configure a subscription so that users assigned the Operator role can subscribe to specified alerts. A subscriber can be an individual user account or a distribution list. Before completing this procedure you must enable a notification channel and then create a notification subscriber.

To create a notification subscription

  1. Log on to the computer with an account that is a member of the Operations Manager Administrators role for the Operations Manager 2007 management group.

  2. In the Operations console, click the Administration button.

  3. In the Administration pane, expand Notifications, right-click Subscriptions, and then click New subscription. The Notification Subscription Wizard starts.

  4. On the General page, in Subscription name, type a descriptive name for the subscription, type a short description, and then click Next.

  5. On the Subscription Criteria page, you can set conditions that will determine when notifications will be sent to specified subscribers. If you do not set conditions, notifications will be sent for all alerts. Click Next.

    You will also receive notifications when an alert is updated.
  6. On the Subscribers page, click Add to add subscribers who are already defined, or click New to add new subscribers. For more information on defining subscribers, see How to Create a Notification Subscription.

  7. Click Next.

  8. On the Channels page, click Add to add a channel that is already defined, or click New to add a new channel. For more information on defining channels, see How to Enable an E-Mail Notification Channel or…(don’t we need topics on enabling IM, text, and command channels?).

  9. In the Alert aging section on the Channels page, select to send notifications without delay or set a value in minutes that notification should be delayed unless conditions remain unchanged, and then click Next.

  10. Review the settings on the Summary page, click Finish, and then click Close.
