After you configure an alert, consider using it as a template for other alerts. For example, you might not want an alert to fire during work hours. To create this alert, you already had to create all of the suppression, alerting, and reset features and exclude the 9-to-5 weekday time period. By copying this alert, you can change only the Time of Day tab to update and include the entire weekend. You might also consider creating disabled template alerts that contain working e-mail alerts, to avoid having to enter the SNMP information again. You might want to notify a different individual on different days. Copying an alert can be useful in all of these scenarios.

  1. Click Alerts > Configure Alerts, and then select the alert to edit on the Configure Alerts window.
  2. Click Copy Alert, and then update the properties you to modify.
  3. To save the copy of your new alert, click OK.
