In System Center Essentials 2010, a notification subscriber defines when and from which devices notifications can be sent. The following procedure shows you how to configure subscribers for notifications. You must first enable a notification channel before performing this procedure. After this procedure is complete, you must create a notification subscription that defines the format of the notification message and any filters, such as age or severity of the alert.

To create a notification subscriber

  1. In the Essentials console, click the Administration button.

  2. In the Administration pane, expand Notifications, right-click Subscribers, and then click New Subscriber, which will launch the Notification Subscriber wizard.

  3. On the Description page, type a display name for this recipient in the Subscriber Name text box, and click Next.

  4. On the Schedule page, select Always send notifications, or if you want to schedule when notifications should be sent to subscribers, click Notify only during the specified times and create a date range. Click Next.

  5. On the Addresses page, click Add. When the Subscriber Address dialog box opens, type a descriptive name for the subscriber’s address in the text box, and click Next.

  6. On the Channel page of the Subscriber Address dialog box, select the channel type, provide a delivery e-mail address for the selected channel, and then click Next.

  7. On the Schedule page of the Subscriber Address dialog box, select whether to always send notifications to subscribers or specify the times you want to deliver notifications to subscribers.

  8. Click Finish to create the notification subscriber, and click Close to exit the wizard.

  9. Start the Create Notification Device Wizard by clicking the Add button.

  10. Expand the Notification channel drop-down list, and then click Email.

  11. In the Your address for the selected channel box, type an e-mail address. For example, type email@adventure-works.com. This is the e-mail address that is listed in the From box of each e-mail message that is sent to notification recipients.

  12. On the Schedule page, you can leave the default schedule or you can set a schedule that applies only to this notification, and then click Next.

  13. On the General page, type a name for this notification device, and then click Finish.

  14. Repeat these steps to define additional notification subscribers. New subscribers will be displayed in the Notifications pane under Subscribers.
