VMTools State eq Not Running on Powered Of VMs

Post by jgreenback » Mar 19, 2015 4:36 pm

Is there a way to exclude "Powered Off" VMs from triggering and error for the VM Tools State alarm? I've looked around but could not find a way. Am I missing something?

Hello Jason,

You can achieve it using Business View. Create a group of powered-on VMs (via Dynamic groups and power state expression) and then find VMware Tools State alarm in Veeam One Monitor > Alarm Management. Double-click the alarm, and in the "Assignment" tab, assign the alarm to the group of powered-on vms only.

Thanks!
