Not consistently receiving Action_SMTPMail alerts.
Action_SMTPMail alerts are not always received.
Action_SMTPMail alerts are not working.
Action_SMTPMail alerts not delivered when an event occurs.


Update the following registry keys with the correct Management Server IP address or name:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\NetIQ\AppManager\4.0\NetIQmc\MS Primary

If you know of the Management Server IP address change ahead of time, you can eliminate the need to change the IP address on the Managed Clients by using the SetPrimaryMS Knowledge Script to update the IP address before changing the IP address of the Management Server.


The IP address of the MS changes and the Primary Management Server and AllowMS settings on the Managed Client are not updated with the new IP address.
