How to disable email alerts on my Unix base Master server

Level 3

I need to disable email alerts from my Master server until I fix an ongoing issue.  I checked the Universal Settings on the Master and the Clients, there are no email addresses listed.   Where else can I look for settings to disable email alerts from Master server? 

I noticed an entry in the bp.conf file see below.  If these lines are comment out will email alerts be disabled?

USEMAIL = <masterserver_email_address>

Have you checked Global Attributes on the master as well? 
This setting also has a field for 'Administrator email address'. 

A good TN that describes the difference between Global Attributes and Universal settings:

You may also want to look in NBU Admin Guide II under the topic 'NetBackup notify scripts'  for a list of 'notify' scripts on the master or media server and see if any is configured with valid email address.

If not on Master Server, you should probably consider looking at OpsCenter Server ? You might have configured email alerts there. Try disabling it from there.

Thank you, Marianne, that worked.  The email addresses were listed on the Global Attribute tab.
