I have one HP DL380 G7 server that is in a remote office. Looks like
iLO 3 does not have the ability to send email notifcations, that
appears to be a feature of iLO 4. I've never used snmp, but that
appears to be my only option with this server. Just looking for
suggestions for a simple cost effective method of receiving snmp
alerts from iLO 3 and converting them to an email message so I can get
notified of problems.

Thanks,
Ken

Hi
In the past I have used sec (simple event correlator) to monitor the
snmp traps coming in to a syslog, then based on that creating a rule to
send an email alert.

the snmptrapd shipped with SLES (net-snmp package) is capable of doing so - you set it up to receive all traps and let it call a shell script for those that are interesting to you. What the shell script does is up to you - sending an email for sure is within limits :)

Best regards,
