Personally, I don’t prefer to install and enable SCCM management pack on the SCOM servers because of the fear of email alerts!! It is very common to see hundreds of emails a day generated by SCOM and most of them are informational etc. Is there any way to reduce SCOM email alerts/notification storm? Savision’s Live Maps Unity will help us to notify only when really necessary and provide a URL in the notification to the root cause details. Isn’t really cool? Dennis Rietvink published an article explains how you can configure SCOM alert notifications to include a URL to the Live Maps Unity service map in an email.
Following are the 3 scenarios of explained in the above mentioned post :-
1.Creating a SMTP channel that formats and sends the service alert emails
2.Creating valid Subscriber that will receive the service alert emails
3.Creating a Subscription that scopes the service alert emails
