VCenter Alerts Exclude one VM

Seems like the only way to set the alerts is on the Hosts & Clusters View. Is there a way to set different triggers and alerts for different Hosts and VMs?

I believe that turning off inheritance is not possible with vCenter.
You can avoid configuring alerts at the Hosts & Clusters level to prevent policy inheritance.

I did not know it mattered which ones. Lets say CPU Usage Alerts for Host and VMs.

You can configure individual alerts for Hosts & VMs if you do not want them to inherit a policy from the top.

Yes, I won't pretend to be an expert on this but I reached the same conclusion recently.  We had a few VM's that the default datastore alert shouldn't apply to so I disabled the default one and created a couple folders to put the machines into for alert grouping.  This at least let me create alerts at the folder level instead of the individual vm.
