NotifyFailover(8)           System Manager's Manual          NotifyFailover(8)


NAME

     NotifyFailover -- send notification of a failover event


SYNOPSIS

     NotifyFailover {up | down} ip_address ...


DESCRIPTION

     NotifyFailover sends an email notifcation announcing the availability or
     failure of a failover node.  NotifyFailover is designed to be invoked by
     failoverd(8), not to be used directly.

     NotifyFailover is external to failoverd(8) so an administrator could eas-
     ily customize notifications to her particular requirements.

     The message will be addressed to the recipients defined by the environ-
     ment variable, FAILOVER_EMAIL_RECIPIENT, (typically defined in
     /etc/hostconfig).  If this variable is also undefined, the message will
     be sent to "root" on the sending host, a destination little better than
     /dev/null!


ENVIRONMENT

     FAILOVER_EMAIL_RECIPIENT  List of email addressees.


FILES

     /usr/libexec/NotifyFailover


DIAGNOSTICS

     The NotifyFailover utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
