I have configured the SMTP server settings through with the config.ace file and did a reboot of the servers.
I went over to jill and used the sample email template by running the insert_glob and the commands afterwards. The database change was successful.
However, while the job was able to run successfully, there was no email notification.
I edited the job and gave an incorrect command and after some restarts, i still did not manage to receive any notifications.
I checked the event_demon logs and this is what was mentioned.
CAUAJM_W_10613 Notification attributes ignored for job <xxxxxxL>. The notification method is currently set to <0>.
Here are my configurations in config.ACE,
Release : 12.0
In the log its seen that the notification attributed ignored because the notification method is set to 0
So perhaps the scheduler was not restarted after updating the config file with the notification method=1
The smtp worked after restarting the scheduler
