  2. To modify the alert policy for an event, click the pencil icon at the right of that line. Each line includes the ID number (NXxxxx), severity rating (critical, warning, or info), message text, frequency (how often the system checks for this condition), and enabled status (yes or no). By default, all these events are enabled (trigger an alert) with a frequency of System Default. The Update Alert Policy dialog box appears.
  3. Update one or more of the policy parameters as desired (and allowed):
    1. ID: Displays the ID number. This value cannot be changed.
    2. Severity: Displays the severity rating of this event. This value cannot be changed.
    3. Message: Displays the event message text. This value cannot be changed.
    4. Frequency: Click the System default button to use the default interval (1 hour). Click the User defined button to set a custom interval and enter an integer value in the left field and Days or Hours from the pull-down list in the right field (for example 4 Hours or 1 Day). Sets how frequently the system checks for this event.
    5. Enabled: Click the Yes button to enable (trigger alert); click the No button to disable (not trigger alert). Sets whether to trigger an alert when this event occurs.
    6. Click the Save button to save the changes and return to the Alert Policies window. (Click the Back button to return without saving any changes.)
