Orion can be configured to play a sound upon alert trigger or reset. The following procedure configures a sound to play for an advanced alert.

Due to restrictions on Windows service applications, the Play a Sound action is not available to SolarWinds installations on either Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 and higher.

  1. Click Play Sound.
  2. Specify a sound file for the alert trigger by doing either of the following in the Sound file to play field:

    • Type the complete directory path and file name.
    • Click Browse (...) to navigate your file system and select the target file.
  3. Click the musical note button to the right of either text field to test the sound file you have specified.
  4. Click Time of Day.
  5. Enter the time period over which you want to activate your alert action, and then select the days on which you want to activate your alert action.
  6. If you want to enable alert escalation, click Alert Escalation, and then check any of the following options, as appropriate for your alert:

    • To disable the action when the alert has been acknowledged, check Do not execute this Action if the Alert has been Acknowledged.
    • To execute the action repeatedly as long as the trigger condition exists, check Execute this Action repeatedly while the Alert is Triggered and then provide an appropriate action execution interval.
    • To delay alert action execution, check Delay the execution of this Action, and then provide an appropriate interval the alert engine should wait after the alert condition is met before the alert action is executed.
  7. If you are finished configuring your play a sound alert action, click OK.
