Create Alarm for Offline VM

Veeam Logoby Infuse » Tue Jun 14, 2016 12:36 pm

Hi, I want to be able to use Veeam One to monitor when a VM on our Hyper-V cluster goes offline, such as loses network connectivity.

I've looked in the Alarm Management area but that only seems to have alarms for Reboot, Guest OS reboot etc. My alarm is for a random disconnection of the VM. Essentially so we can be notified by email and an alarm shows on the monitor client dashboard.

I'm sure somebody must have done this and that it's really easy but we're struggling. Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi Mark and welcome to the community!
Unfortunately there is no such an alarm in current version. We will make it available in next releases.
Thanks for the feedback!

Hi Shestakov, many thanks for the welcome.

I'm trying to do what this user has done but can't get Veeam one to register if a monitored VM goes offline at all. It doesn't show offline in the Veeam One server even if I turn the VM off.

Thanks.

Mark,
The thing is currently such events as
Event ID 12597: 'VM' Network Adapter Connected to virtual network.
Event ID 12598: 'VM' Network Adapter Disconnected from virtual network.

are not collected by Veeam ONE thus can`t be used for the alarms. As I said we are planning to add them in future and make predefined alarms based on these events.
