Host Alarms disabled in VC

Post by Iain_Green » Apr 19, 2017 8:20 am


I am looking to create an alarm in Veeam one that will monitor when alarm actions have been disabled for greater than a given time period on host.
I know I can create a custom alarm for Events, but it appears it you disable the alarms on a host in VCentre there is no event name triggered so I am unable to create a custom alarm for the event?

Hoping someone else may have had a similar idea and knows a how to implement?
Many thanks

Hi Iain, you may monitor such configuration change as events turnoff.
Otherwise I doubt there is such a state of host to be monitored constantly.

If you disable the predefined alarm on the host it doesn't mean that events will not be triggered for the alarm. I would suggest to create (duplicate) custom alarms based on the vCenter Server predefined list.
