Try to set up a suppression for needed alarm and define a time range when you're running your SureBackup jobs. This option is available in alarm's settings.
But I think you DO know where it is located ;)

I come from a windows background, so I open Veeam One Monitor and I see the folders for my Virtual Machines, click on them and see that they are "uncategorized". My instinct / intuitive knee jerk reaction is that I should be able to right click the folder containing my VM's and have a menu to "categorize" my VM's. Of course that's not the case and it's a lot harder than that and you need to know how to make a complex formula to group your VMs...

So feature request, integrate your product more with Veeam One Monitor and let us admins have an easier time of organizing the monitoring layout.

Can VeeamONE be Thin Provision Disk aware? so far as I can see it sees drives that are low on space and therefore setsup an alarm, but said volumes/disks are in fact thin provisioned, so will grow automatically.

Hi Simon,

Veeam ONE is already aware about thin-provisioned disks. By saying alarms on low space, do you mean Guest disks alarms? If this is the case, then these alarms are relying on what your Guest OS sees in terms of provisioned capacity, and if you have VMware Tools installed on the monitored VM, you will see that our Guest Disk views on the VM summary page are already "aware" about thin provisioning.

Let me know if that answers your query.

Ah ok.. I guess I will simply have to surpress the alarm per VM then?

You can suppress it even per VM guest disk. To do that you need select "View all disks" om the summary tab and choose disks you want to exclude from monitoring.

Drag and drop reorganization would be nice.

Especially in ONE Monitor.

Being quite new to the system I saw "Oh, there are the machines in uncategorized. Cool, I'll just drag and drop that one to Mission Critical and that one to Other!"

Of course that didn't work at all and I spent an embarrassingly long time trying to do it in Monitor - took me an inordinate amount of time to figure out you had to fire up the separate business view thing, go to Workspace and manually edit each entry separately by double-clicking there to set SLA.

Same thing with categories in general, I went to do the obvious in Monitor - right-click on the "Virtual Machines" folder expecting a "New Folder" options, but nope. There too you have to know to go to the Business View and this time find the Configuration under Groups.

It's all quite messy and spread out when one should have the ability to both drag and drop and right-click to set these things, in my opinion, in one location. Optionally, a way to lock out casual edits as well.

I'm a Veeam newbie, and was favourably impressed with the good 'high level design/architecture' documentation for Veeam Backup & Recovery. I haven't been able to find that for Veeam ONE (and I see a few other people have had questions on the topic), so I think it would be quite useful for a lot of new people.

(You want a lot of new customers, right? :) )

Gimme pictures!

... with words.

Hi Denver,

Veeam ONE is even easier than Veeam B&R ;) The architecture and deployment guidelines (Deployment Guide) can be found on our product page: http://www.veeam.com/virtualization-man ... urces.html

Thanks!

Not sure if it's been submitted already:

When I close / open Monitor, I'd like for it to save my config (views, settings, etc.)
Example: Memory tab I have the "custom view" set for "Percentage" only. Its annoying to reset it every time I open the app!

Hi! We are testing VeeamOne 6.5 to monitor several customers' farms, and one (silly) thing I'd like to be able to do is to assign a label to vcenters or hosts and veeam b&r servers. Right now my workaround is to assign aliases in the hosts file, as once you have quite a few servers listed things start to get messy :P

Hi! Do you want to categorize existing physical resources with these labels? Have you considered using Business View for that?
