Comment 1 wes hayutin 2009-03-31 10:06:48 EDT
users should NOT receive this email
Comment 2 Clifford Perry 2009-03-31 11:09:44 EDT
This is not a bug, I get these in 4.x and 5.x Monitoring. 

Who said it was a bug? :) 

Closing out.
Comment 3 Mike McCune 2009-03-31 11:51:37 EDT
I did. this email is annoying and largely useless.  Why should one of the many services spam the admin every time it starts!?
Comment 4 Vlady Zlatkin 2009-03-31 11:53:32 EDT
I agree with Mike and so does a customer next to whom I am sitting.
Comment 5 Miroslav Suchý 2009-07-23 08:50:09 EDT
I done it in spacwalk in commit 8b5b5c0e4fff24c28aae8687d2d45bbaf7d9655d.
However I do not recommend it to backport to 530 (it have some requirements which are not in 530). Leaving for next release.

Now is new option notify_scout_start available in file /etc/rhn/cluster.ini. It is by default set to 0, which means: do not send email on successfull scout start. When set to 1, old behavior is restored, i.e. email is sent. 
If Scout fails to start email is sent no matter what value is set.

test procedure:
1. enable monitoring
2. rhn-satellite restart
3. see mail

sat530: 'RHN Monitoring Scout started'
sat540: no mail about scout starting
verified with Satellite-5.4.0-RHEL5-re20100910.2
Comment 9 Tomas Lestach 2010-10-27 06:46:07 EDT
I followed the test scenario from Comment#8 and I received no email notifying start of monitoring scout.
