It's pending, but code preparations have already been started. Yes, you can use MBs (0.4 GB) for the thresholds as well.

Thx for info. Ok, trying now... 8.0.0.1669, editing alarm, point to Rules-->Guest free disk space-->Absolute-->Below-->Warning, GB--> Can't type/enter "." or "," after "0" or after any other digit. What I'm doing wrong? :)

You're using the wrong version :) Jokes aside, this is possible in v9 (scheduled to be released this quarter).

To update the thread - one of our dev guys responsible for all alarms and alarms engine has just told me that he was able to squeeze in this feature (an ability to exclude particular disk right from the alarm creation UI) into v9 release.

IN v9 where would one go to exclude individual disks in the alarm creation UI? I do see "Disk Name" and currently am alerting on *. Would i be able to list the disks i would like to alert on such as C:\\; D:\\ and disks not required such as P:\\ simply do not list?

Is there a way to permanently exclude the User Profile Disks on a Windows 2012 R2 RDS-server from monitoring? These disks get created when the user logs on and deleted when the user logs off, so manually excluding them makes no sense. So every time a user logs on, we will receive a warning.

Hello Raymond,
What kind of alarm do you receive?
Thanks!

We receive the same alarm message as if the user data disk was a normal disk:
[Veeam ONE Monitor] Alarm - Guest disk space for <server> has been changed to Error (previous state: Reset/resolved)
Details:Amount of free disk space "C:\Users\<username>\UserData\" (0.5 GB) is below a defined threshold (2.0 GB).

Does it happen on a particular VM? You can exclude the VM from the existing alarm rule and create another rule for particular disks of that VM.

Sorry, probably didn't explain myself 100% correctly, but what I want to be able to do is apply this to a specific drive, for example

Server has 4 drives

C:\
D:\
E:\
F:\

I want the standard Guest Disk alarm applied to C:\, F:\, F:\
and my custom <1% alarm applied to D:\.

Is that possible?



If I have read the thread correctly, the above is now possible?
How would one go about doing this?
Many thanks

Yes, it is possible now as explained above.
You can create a custom alarm with only one VM in assignment and set disk name in the alarm rule.
Thanks!

One other, are we able to exclude file paths/

Example:

Some performs a FLR on the B&R server, we get alerted as per below when the restore point is mounted.

"Amount of free disk space "C:\VeeamFLR\<server_name>_ffbb547b\Volume4\" (8.8%) is below a defined threshold (10.0%). Current free disk space is 273.80 GB."

Now in our current system we can exclude with wild cards so \VeeamFLR\ is spotted and the alert is suppressed. Unfortunately Veeam One alerts to low disk for the mount point and sends out an alert.
Many thanks
