notify.cmd - Sun QFS or SAM-QFS email subscriptions commands
The Sun QFS or SAM-QFS system has the ability to inform a
user of certain events or conditions by generating a message
and automatically sending email notifications.
The /etc/opt/SUNWsamfs/notify.cmd stores the email addresses
for the following notifications: No space available on file
system (ENospace), Recovery Point warnings (DumpWarn),
Recovery Point errors (DumpInterrupted), File System
exceeded its high water mark (HwmExceeded), ACSLS configura-
tion warnings (AcslsWarn), and ACSLS configuration errors
The email subscriptions are added, modified and deleted only
via the SAM-QFS Manager software, a browser-based graphical

Manager software to add, modify, or delete subscriptions,
but if you must manually modify this file, take care to
preserve the formatting of this file.
The following is an example /etc/opt/SUNWsamfs/notify.cmd
