VM Ware shows alarms

On Sunday, I shut down my server which has 8 vms on for maint. I restarted six of them which i need for production and five of them have a red excamation point by them showing alarm.On the cluster, it said that they were going into failover mode. That alarm I acknowledged, but I can't see what the alarm on the vms mean. I have looked in the alarm tab and that is blank. How can I check what the alarm is trying to tell me and/or clear the alarms as the machines seem OK?

Check if you have alarms triggered in Cluster or VM.

Otherwise you have the Phantom Alerts in ESXi 5.0/vSphere 5.0 vCenter.

We all have them!

Try moving the VM to another server, power cycle the VM, Restart HA, Restart Network Management Agents, Restart vCenter Services - all these can help!

otherwise log a Support Request with VMware Support, and ask them for a valid reason!

I migrated to the other server and back. did not have to reboot or restart services. If the migration did not get rid of the message, then I would have. thanks for the solution.
