SnaPatch provides a number of email notifications to keep you constantly informed throughout the Snapshot and Patching Process.
- You may select to be notified when a job starts, snapshots are completed, when patching is complete and when snapshots are due to be deleted.
- An email notification to indicate a job has started will list all the servers that are part of that job.
- Once snapshots are completed, an email indicating which servers have had snapshots successfully taken (and any that have failed) will be sent to the address you specify.
- A final email will be sent detailing a summary of the results. Servers that have had patches deployed will be shown with the number of updates installed against the number of updates deployed. Below you will find some example notifications.
