Duplicate VM MAC errors, caused by B&R (Feature request)

Veeam Logoby stevenrodenburg1 » Tue Dec 27, 2011 2:25 pm

Hello,

Replica VM's, created by Backup & Replication, have the same MAC address as the original VM's. This is normal.
Veeam Monitor ofcourse kindly sends out Emails because of this.

Wish: a filter for VM's to ignore (the replicas) because the alert is usefull and should be left active.
The "Alarm settings -> Suppress" Tab would be a logical place to define such a filter.


Kind regards,
Steven Rodenburg

Hi Steven,

Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated.

Did you know that you can leave this alarm untouched for your entire infrastructure but suppress it solely for replicated VMs even now?

Please see this topic for more details: False alarms for Snapshot size (nevermind the title)

Thanks.

Hi Vitaliy,

I know but being able to enter a filter (like *_replica ) in the alert-definition would do the trick for all replica VM's at once (and prevent manual editing with each new replica being created).

Cheers,
Steve
