NMC1 Cards AP9618 AP9619 Config Files and stubborn emails

This was originally posted on APC forums on 10/11/2016


Hi. I'm in the process of mass configuring about 100 x NMC cards (generally AP9618, AP9619 and some NMC2 cards) and only want 'genuine' fault messages to be emailed to me. I've pretty much achieved this but keep getting 'Self-test passed' emails sent to me (0x0105), even though I've masked it out in the config.ini file.

For example, the email message content is as follows: 

Date: 10/10/2016

Time: 20:59:53

Code: 0x0105

Informational - UPS: passed via internal operation a self-test.

But the line in the config.ini file is as follows:

; UPS: Passed a self-test.
E0105=ES,E[:::],T[:::::],P[:::]

So, the settings within the 'E' brackets should mean that emails are masked to all recipients - yet the cards keeps sending them! Any ideas why and/or how we can prevent this? Also, I've noticed in some config files, there are '-' signs between the colons. What does this mean? 

PS The firmware AOS Version is V3.7.3 & APP is V3.7.2

Many thanks.

Thanks Angela, this has resolved the issue.

Once I'd followed this procedure, I then read the config.ini file again and as I queried in my original post, inserting a '-' between the colons in the email recipient brackets masks the 'clearance' emails from being sent.

Hi Richard,

Please read this knowledge base article as far as how to disable self test passed event along with the caveats: http://www.apc.com/us/en/faqs/FA156104

Please read this knowledge base on understanding the config.ini and its syntax even though we don't recommend editing it directly due to its complexity and nuances: http://www.apc.com/us/en/faqs/FA156188

Hope these cover your questions.
