The Notifications Test Tool is a simple tool you can use to test your notification channels and subscriptions.  This tool can be used to test email (SMTP), Instant Message (IM) or Text message (SMS) channels.  Also, you can use this to generate a test alert in OpsMgr to test subscriptions.

Install Instructions:

Download and install the OMTestTool.msi to a local directory on your computer.

Note: This tool must be installed on a computer that has the OpsMgr console installed and run from someone logged as a local admin.  To run the tool you must me a member of the OpsMgr Administrator group.

I have included a small user guide in the zip file.  This tool will work on all version of OpsMgr.  I plan to update this tool to support multiple channels types that R2 now exposes when I get some time.

Note: If you are running this tool on an OS where UAC is enabled please make sure to right click and run as Administrator.

This utility is supplied "as -is" with no support.  In addition, my thoughts and opinions often change, and as a weblog is intended to provide a semi-permanent point in time snapshot you should not consider out of date posts to reflect my current thoughts and opinions.
