Alerting Schedule/Maintenance

Veeam Logoby cpohts » Mon Apr 08, 2013 8:20 pm

Short of opening each alarm definition and setting a supression time, is there a way to globally stop monitoring or ignore alerts for a recurring schedule? All my servers are restarted at a random time between 2am and 5am Monday mornings which generates a bunch of alerts in Veeam. I could live with ignoring these alerts at the time period daily if I had to, but can this be setup without editing each alarm definition? Thanks all.

There is no GUI setting for that, but let me check if it is possible to do that with a SQL script. I will post back once I have more info.

Here is the script that sets suppress time period (from 2 am to 3 am) for all alarms:
Code: Select all
UPDATE monitor.Alarm SET suppress_type = 2, suppress_data = '02:0003:00'

In v7 I will ask our dev team to add such capability to Monitor Client. Hope this helps!

Sorry, this didn't work. I ran the command in SQL Management Studio, but received the eorror "Invalid object name monitor.alarm" Do I need to do anything else for this command to work.

What version of Veeam ONE are you currently using?

Found the problem - SQL MS didn't identify the VeamONE instance. The browse function only identified the db instance for Veeam Backup. I checked the VeeamOneSettings tool and identified the SQL instance, loaded it manually in SQL MS and ran the script against the VeeamOne database. Completed successfully. Is there anyway to verify this suppression time is now active for all alarms?

Yep, it can be verified in the GUI by checking suppress setting of any alarm. Please, be aware that you need to restart Veeam One service first.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.
