This topic describes how to set a fail-safe operator to receive Microsoft SQL Server Agent alert notifications. A fail-safe operator is a user who receives the alert if the designated operator cannot be reached.

  1. In Object Explorer, connect to an instance of the SQL Server Database Engine, and then expand that instance.

  2. Right-click SQL Server Agent and select Properties. Click the Alert System page.

  3. Under Fail-safe operator, check Enable fail-safe operator. In the Operator list, click an operator.

  4. Click the appropriate notification types to specify how the operator will be notified.
