Upon resolving this issue, I started getting email notifications...and more....and more....and more. I have now received 800+ emails (now 2000+) and they are still coming!
The time stamps in the message show they are being sent every 2-3 seconds. Each internal time stamp is current with the current time, so they are being generated in real time and don't seem to be queued.
Here is an example (screen shot attached):
Code: Select all
Severity: Warning Date/Time: 2020/04/19 14:37:37 App Name: Network & Virtual Switch Category: Infrastructure Message: [Network & Virtual Switch] Default Gateway "Adapter 1" disconnected.
I have attached and image of the Network Interface Console for the Virtual Switch and all seems good.
I have turned off the Email Notification option for "Network & Virtual Switch".
I have removed my SMTP email service from the notification manager.
I have rebooted the system.
I have updated the firmware. But they keep coming.
My only option at this point is to take the machine off line.
Okay, the email messages have just stopped, but the notifications are still going.
In the Notification Center a new Warning is being logged every 2-3 seconds, but is now accompanied with a notice that the notification failed to send. I assume this because I removed the SMTP information.
Actually I see that google has shut down my email account for the day for exceeding the maximum allowed outgoing messages. AAARRRGGGHHHH!!!
Does anyone have any idea on why the Virtual Interface is unhappy?
And why the message would be logged unendingly...every 2-3 seconds? Certainly there should be a limiter on messages.
