VM Guest Disk Space Alarm keeps occurring

Post by TGacs » Jun 07, 2017 10:05 pm

Veeam One 9.5.0.3254
Hyper-V 2016 environment
2008R2 VM Guest

Veeam One correctly triggered a "Guest Disk Space" alarm for a Server 2008R2 VM.
Shut down the VM.
Expanded the VHDX.
Started the VM and went into Disk Mgmt and extended the Windows volume so the volume is now only ~50% full. (This is the only volume on the VM.)
Resolved the alarm in VeeamOne.
However, the same Guest Disk Space alarm keep triggering and showing the exact same low free space values as it originally detected.
This is still occurring ~45 minutes after expanding the VM's disk space. Refresh does nothing.

NOTE1: The VeeamOne Summary screen for the VM shows the GUEST DISK USAGE at ~50% free, and teh Datastore state shows the disk as Healthy.
NOTE2: This VM is a domain controller and even using a domain admin account for the VM credentials in VeeamOne does not fix the situation.

Q: How long should it take for VeeamOne to update the values to the current condition of 50% full and stop triggering the alarm?

Well, darn it. After going through all the effort of making a detailed post, the alarm resolved on its own about 5 minutes after posting. Not sure why it did so more than 45+min after resolving the actual problem.

Hello TGacs,
Indeed Veeam ONE takes time to refresh VI objects configuration as if we refresh it as often as performance metrics, it will slow down the workload.
We will think how to avoid that type of confusion though.
Thank you for pointing that out!
