Does anyone know how I can get Automic v9 to send a notification for a JOB that fails with FAULT OTHER - START IMPOSSIBLE?
I get notified at the schedule level when a workflow is unable to start, but not on a job itself.
A while back, I created a solution to check for any object that ended in FAULT_OTHER in the past 5 mins and to send an email with a list of objects if there are any.
The query in the SQL variables are written for SQL Server, so if you're using Oracle or DB2, they'll need to be rewritten.
Import the .xml and then execute the SCRI.FAULT > Recurring for every 5 mins (Or adjust to a different time frame as needed)
(This only works for v9 and later)
One way is to use the task’s Properties, Result tab. Set its OK status to something like ANY_OK and in its Else Execute enter your notification task such as a Script or Notification object as required. I'm assuming that is is similar to how you are currently being notified of work flow failures from the Schedule.
We do this under V8 so I assume it works the same in more current versions.
Really wish the UI could handle displaying faults
Marks suggestion does not resolve the issue for V9 and later. A job can fail to launch because of a typo in a variable name, and it doesn't tell anyone.
I have already implemented a solution similar to Jennifer's. We don't need to run it every 5 minutes though. We just run it once an hour.
In addition, I put it inside of a workflow and added to it an email alert when an agent goes down.
We also use HP’s Business Service Management (BSM) product.
While I do not know its full capabilities as it is owned by another
group, it checks for blocked workflows and notifications (pages & emails)
are sent to the associated support staff.
Perhaps your company has some similar product that could assist with
