Adding and editing a Sound Action

A sound file can be assigned to an action by creating a sound action. The Desktop Actions application must be running for the Sound action to work. For more information, see About the Task Tray and Desktop Actions applications.

Configure the following:

Tip: To check the status of an action, or to cancel an action, in the WhatsUp Gold console go to Tools > Running Actions.

If you want to bring text-to-speech action sound to a Windows 2003 or Windows 2008 server class remote desktop (RDP) system, you need to enable audio mapping for the remote system Terminal Services Configuration.

Configure the following:

  1. In Windows, click Start > Run, in the Run dialog type TSCC.msc, then click OK.
  2. In the Connections folder, double-click RDP-tcp. The RDP-TCP Properties dialog appears.
  3. Select the Client Settings tab, then click to clear the Audio Mapping check box. When enabled, the text-to-speech action sound only plays on the remote desktop system.
