Physical NIC vmnic8 linkstate is down

Post by RobRunVirt » Feb 07, 2019 7:38 am 2 people like this post

Hi,

I have two network connections that aren't used any more. The Event description: Physical NIC vmnic8 linkstate is down was valid, but isn't anymore.
The alert is still comming up in Veeam One monitoring. How do I configure it not to monitor the decommisioned network ports?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,
RobRunVirt

Hi Roberto and welcome to the community!
You can exclude individual hosts, but not ports.
However, there is a workaround. In event text field you can specify name of networks you want to monitor. All other networks will be filtered out.
Thanks!

Thanks for your reply. I think that won't be handy in the long run if it is on a higher level object, correct me if I am wrong
There must be a different approach. Maybe removing from a DB and re-discover the ESXi host.

Right, if you have several objects where you want to monitor different networks set, you need to create(clone) an alarm for each host.

Do you mean completely remove information about unused networks? What if it's not used temporary?
Thanks!

We are having the Same Problem ( in our Case we have 2 Ports on a Daughterboard with 4 Ports which we dont use ) , my Current Customer Support Engineer told me to open a Feature Request as the Question isnt solvable through the Monitoring as VeeamOne has now way of filtering those Infos out or handle it differently .
