Is it possible to suppress them as "knows events"?

You may not want to add this as "known event" because in this case you might skip a real 'problematic' situation.
You can just exclude the corresponding alarm.

Suppress alarm doesn't work for replication

I have Veeam Monitor 5 monitoring my vCenter environment, and every time a replication occurs (in this case, every 2 hr) two alarms are generated:

VM instance UUID conflict
VM MAC address conflict

Because these are a "normal" consequence of replicating a VM via Veeam B&R, I would like to suppress them... so I went into those alarms and looked at the Suppress tab, and chose "Suppress when certain task is performed: Veeam Backup activity" but this has NO effect on the triggering/reporting of these errors that recur every two hours during my VM replications.

Is this supposed to work, or did Veeam forget to add a "during Veeam REPLICATION activity" setting to the Suppress tab?

Veeam Backup Replicas causing "Conflict" alarms

I have a handful of replicas, created with Veeam Backup and Replication. These are detected as having UUID and MAC conflicts in monitor.

Is this intended behavior?

Ok, I see. Thanks for the merge. So "yes" would be my answer :P

I will simply exclude my replica VMs from this alarm. Thanks.

Feature request: Mac Conflict alarm excl. from B&R Replicas

Hello,

When B&R creates a replica VM, the same MAC-Adress is used (which is good).

Veeam Monitor however...
...starts yelling because of this.

As Monitor is B&R aware, it would be very nice if Monitor could exclude the "VM Mac Address Conflict" alarm automatically from replica machines. This saves annoyance and labour at every new customer when setting up replica jobs (especially when there are a lot of them).

Cheers,
Steve

Hi Steven,

Currently there is no way to distinguish replicated VMs from ordinary ones, but I'm investigating possibilities of implementing deeper integration between B&R and Veeam ONE. Thanks for the feedback!
