Health check interval notification

The ENM interval to send server health messages is by default set to one hour.
*Warning: Take backups of any files prior to modifying them. Ensure the backups are in a location that will not be overwritten (i.e. the Desktop).

The notification interval can be changed by modifying the APMService.exe.config configuration file in ENM 8.2 and below or the file SEENS.exe.config in ENM 8.3.
To make the changes, follow steps below.
1. Navigate to the event notification folder. Normally is located at C:\Program Files\Schneider Electric\StruxureWare Solutions\EventNotification in an ENM 8.2 and lower installation.
    In an ENM 8.3 installation, this is located in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Schneider Electric\StruxureWare Solutions\Event Notification Service. 
2. Find the APMService.exe.config or SEENS.exe.config configuration file. 

3. Open the config file for editing with notepad.
4. In the configuration file, find the lines of code similar to below.

6. Change the value interval to the interval wanted. For example, instead of hourly if daily notifications are desired, set value equal to 1440 like below.

7. Save your changes and close the configuration file editing. 

8. Restart the ENM services in order for the change to take effect.
    SE Event Gathering Service
    SE Event Logging Service
    SE Event Notification Service
    SE Server Manager Host

9. Additionally, if it is desired to receive the health check email at a certain time everyday, restart the services at that time one day and from that day onward the health check email will be received at that time.
   For example, if it is desired to receive the health check email at 12 pm everyday, then (after following the steps from 1 to 7), restart the 3 services at 12 pm.
   However, if someone restarts the services at a different time the health check interval will start counting down as soon as the ENM services are restarted. 
   This will also be true in the case of a computer reboot.
   Health check interval always begins counting down as soon as ENM services are started.
