smtp-serverkey to the desired SMTP server address:
# hosted-engine --set-shared-config smtp-server smtp.example.com --type=broker
NoteTo verify that the self-hosted engine configuration file has been updated, run:
# hosted-engine --get-shared-config smtp-server --type=broker broker : smtp.example.com, type : broker
- Check that the default SMTP port (port 25) has been configured:
# hosted-engine --get-shared-config smtp-port --type=broker broker : 25, type : broker
- Specify an email address you want the SMTP server to use to send out email notifications. Only one address can be specified.
# hosted-engine --set-shared-config source-email email@example.com --type=broker
- Specify the destination email address to receive email notifications. To specify multiple email addresses, separate each address by a comma.
# hosted-engine --set-shared-config destination-emails firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com --type=broker
