Mail alerts with quickstart VM

[ Edited ]



I am using VM quickstart and trying to set user/password for email alerts (Alert Publisher > cloudera manager mail alert) but I don´t know what user/pass are configurated by default or how to configure. 


Some recommendation?


Thanks in advance

Re: Mail alerts with quickstart VM



In general, the required fields are


Alerts: Mail Server Hostname: <mail server host>

Alert: Mail From Address: noreply@localhost

Alerts: Mail Message Recipients: <email>


and below are optional

Alerts: Mail Server Username: <optional>

Alerts: Mail Server Password: <optional>


Note: This is an enterprise level setup and I didn't get a chance to explore from quickstart VM

Re: Mail alerts with quickstart VM

I want quickstart virtual machine default values to send alert mails, that configuration does not work for me. :(
