Configuration Change Notification

  Table of Contents


Specifying an increase or decrease in the number of active cores — using the icapmodify command — causes a core configuration change. A notification e-mail is sent to the system-contact when a change occurs that affects the configuration of cores.

If you do not desire a notification e-mail to be sent whenever a configuration change is made, you may disable this feature by using the following command on HP-UX:
/usr/sbin/icapnotify -n off

Here is an example of the configuration change notification e-mail message the Instant Capacity software sends to the system-contact. Note that if the operation was a deferred configuration change, “previous” and “current” would show equal values; only the “Number of cores to be active after reboot” would reflect the requested change.
