I wish to create an email alert for any changes in Add/Remove Programs--whether a program is installed or removed. I read a previous thread on this topic (Recieve alerts when new programs are installed? ) and also consulted the materials on this topic (Monitoring and Alerting ). I have done the following so far:
- Modified the Inventory Change Settings to log events and create an alert regarding the name of any program added or removed under Add or Remove Programs
- Created a ruleset specifying any alerts for Add or Remove Programs be emailed to me
- Deployed the new ruleset to my computer
However, I tested a few times by installing programs that do create entries under Add or Remove Programs, but no alert arrived. Nothing is listed in the Alert log of LDMS. There is no sendmail log file in the root of the LDMS installation directory. I am at a loss as to what I am missing. The training video (DOC-5674) did not shed any light on the problem.
We are using LDMS 9.50. My computer is running Windows 10 x64 Version 1703.
