  • Email Notifications — Determine whether you want to receive email every time a patch alert is applicable to one or more systems in your account.

    This setting enables Management and Provisioning customers to receive a daily summary of system events. These include actions affecting packages, such as scheduled patches, system reboots, or failures to check in. In addition to selecting this check box, you must identify each system to be included in this summary email. By default, all Management and Provisioning systems are included in the summary. Add more systems either individually on the System Details page or for multiple systems at once in the Main Menu  Systems  System Set Manager interface. Note that SUSE Manager sends these summaries only to verified email addresses. To disable all messages, simply deselect this check box.
  • SUSE Manager List Page Size — Maximum number of items that appear in a list on a single page. If more items are in the list, clicking the Next button displays the next group of items. This preference applies to system lists, patch lists, package lists, and so on.
