2097-02-15 16:03:04,915 [16] WARN  SolarWinds.Orion.Core.Actions.Utility.Smtp.SmtpServerConnectionChecker - (null)  Failed to get host entry 192.168.1.1 port 25. No such host is known

Environment

NPM 12.0.1

Cause 

The SMTP server does not accept the SMTP traffic from the Orion server.

Resolution

  1. Make sure that the correct SMTP host is configured in alerts. This can be configured by bulk in the Web Console (Settings > All Settings > Manage SMTP Servers).
  2. Verify that the SMTP server is correctly configured to accept SMTP traffic from the Orion server.
