Is it possible to modify the default threshold and action settings for select modules, so that everything is good to go as soon as I add the node into SMC?
I am trying to find a way to easily standardize the monitoring and notification settings across the environment.
I think the easiest way to standardize your thresholds and actions settings would be to use the Manage Jobs feature, which allows you to create tasks like loading/unloading modules, adding rows to specific modules, setting up alarm thresholds and actions and apply it to a user-defined group of objects. This way, if you add a new node to Sun MC, you can run the same task already saved in managed jobs against the new node.
There is a nice example on how to use Manage Jobs here: [http://forums.halcyoninc.com/showthread.php?t=97&highlight=threshold]
