I've been working through the installation and configuration of Zabbix over the past couple of days and I think I've finally got everything working... except the sending of notifications / alerts.
I'm running on a Ubuntu server which is using Exim to send emails. I'd previously used this Exim setup to send notifications for Nagios so I know that Exim itself works.
However, I can't seem to get Zabbix to send out notifications.
Here's what I've done so far:
- Set up a "test trigger" like so:
Trigger severity >= "Information" Send message to User "Admin"
- The Admin user has a email contact (and I've sent command line emails from Exim on the server using "sendmail" to this email address successfully)
- The media type for email is set. (I've used 127.0.0.1 as the smtp server address)
- I've checked the user permissions and it is read/write for all host groups
The triggers are definitely getting set but no actions are being called... I think my problem is within Zabbix as it's not actually executing the actions
And idea how to configure this correctly?
EDIT: More info about my problem (thanks @Richlv)
1- Audit has nothing indicating any errors in it. In fact it doesn't have anything about any actions being executed either...
2- The user is the Zabbix super user
3- Media configuration is correct, I can send test emails to that address from command line using sendmail (which is actually Exim)
4- There are no recovery messages or escalations selected for the test action
5- My zabbix version is 1.8.2
