Cannot reset VMware alarms to green
Posted on 2011-04-29
Running vSphere 4.1 with several file stores.
One of these had a "red" alarm because it was almost filling up.
Meanwhile, I have migrated *all* VMs away from that store.
Ovreview says: 199.75 GB capacity, 562MB made available, 199.2 GB free.
"Search file store" only lists two files of 2.5 KB each. (Why the dicrepancy 5 KB vs 562MB?)
All in all, there is no more reason for an alarm.
Deescaltion from red to yellow or green has worked automatically before.
I could "confirm" the alarm, but there is no option to "reset to green" - not even greyed out.
(Curiously, some other alarms that are already green, still have "reset to green" available in the menu)
I might add that we updated everything from 4.0 to 4.1 a few weeks ago.
