Lifecycle Manager – email settings

This post was originally published on this site

Hi,

 

i’m i little bit confused about this behavior.

 

In the Lifecycle Manager i have entered my email address to get notifications when new patches are available and in the vCenter configration i have entered my internal smtp server.

 

But now i noticed on my external messaging gateway that the vcenter connects that gateway to send me that notification mail.

 

From where is he getting that ip/name from?

 

Do the Lifecycle Manager ask the mx record to deliver emails? Why isn’t he using the configured mail host?

 

Kind regards

Stefan
