On Oracle Big Data Appliance (BDA) V2.0, Cloudera Manager (CM) email alerts are sent to an "old" email address even after updating to a "new" email address. The "new" email address was set in the configuration options of "Alert Publisher" setting "Alerts: Mail Message Recipients", with a description of "a comma-separated list of email addresses to send alerts to" via CM Services > mgmt > Configuration > Alert Publisher > Alerts: Mail Message Recipients >Save Changes.

Additionally a warning like below is observed on the Alert Publisher setting Configuration page:

Saved 0 change(s).  Restart the service (or the instance) for the changes to take effect.

Above the warning is a message stating:

Currently Started with Outdated Configuration and Good Health
