Alarm action to Hard Reset VM

Veeam Logoby marcwlu » Tue Jun 14, 2016 11:48 pm

Anyone know how to set an alarm action to do a hard reset of a VM? I have an old server that occasionally has a CPU to 100% and I can log in to reboot and end up having to do a hard reset. It would be great if the Veeam One Monitor to have a threshold if CPU goes to 100% for 15 minutes to do an action of a Hard Reset of the VM.

Thanks for the help.

Hello Marc and welcome to the community.
It can be currently achieved if you set "Run script" option under "Action" tab of the alarm settings and respective powershell script.
Thanks!

I see. Thanks for the response. I guess I have to look into the script side of things. I can't do anything inside the VM as it is at 100% CPU (also Linux). I really would have though this would be action item in Veeam One given it can do that through mouse clicks out of Veeam One console. It also is an option in many other monitoring software such SolarWinds.

Thanks for the request, Marc.
Indeed "remediation actions" is one of the requests we get from time to time. We will consider its implementation in future versions.
For now the best way to achieve goals is Alarm Action + powershell script.
