Novell Cluster Services for Linux has an option to send notifications out via email about cluster events. In Novell iManager you can configure it to send email to any given account notifying of Critical Events or Verbose Messages.
Notification messages are sent to administrative email accounts or groups containing pertinent information related to cluster events. The messages can't be modified.
IManager- >My Clusters- >(cluster name)- >Cluster options- >Properties- >Notification.
For those cases that require custom messages sent to a person or group to inform about loads or uploads of cluster resources, it is possible to use the Linux command "sendmail" that can be included in the load or unload scripts.
ignore_error ncpcon unbind --ncpservername=NCPNAME --ipaddress=10.0.0.1
ignore_error del_secondary_ipaddress 10.0.0.1
ignore_error nss /pooldeact=POOLNAME
ignore_error sendmail email@example.com < /tmp/resourceofflinemessage.txt
PS. For this to work, it is necessary that all the nodes in the cluster can resolve the email address, obviously.
