Advanced Settings Utility (ASU) does not support 'Remotealertrecipient' setting on VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi) - IBM System x, BladeCenter, Flex System


RETAIN tip: H21962


Integrated Management Module (IMM) does not support the configuration of IMM 'remotealertrecipient' settings through Common Information Model (CIM) interface.

As a result, Advanced Settings Utility (ASU) cannot configure IMM 'remotealertrecipient' settings on VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi) which are configured by CIM interface.

Although users can use ASU to configure and display 'remotealertrecipient' settings on ESXi and will receive a successful message, the commands may not actually take effect.

Affected configurations

The system is configured with at least one of the following:

  • VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi) 5.0, any Update
