Edit log shipping primary alert

Sql 2012 Std.
One of our databases was renamed prior to deleting the log shipping setup.  Now the 'Log shipping Primary Server Alert' sends a 14420 alert every few minutes complaining that <olddatabasename> has not performed a backup log operation.  Looking in management studio under 'alerts-logshippingPrimary...' I can edit the job to check all databases, or ONE specific database. I do not want to create a custom alert check  job for each DB.  How do I remove the old dbname from the list of names being checked?

Figured it out.

First back up MSDB

Verify backup of MSDB


Attach to the msdb database and run query
Select * from msdb.dbo.log_shipping_monitor_primary

From results get the primary_id of the db with the problem and insert it in the appropriate place on the following query.

begin tran
delete from msdb.dbo.log_shipping_monitor_primary
where primary_id='FC6F41C1-0697-4354-BBDF-615A4AD1BC10'
rollback tran

Run check first to make sure only ONE colum is affected, then execute.

Running query as above will check without making changes.
Remove the begin tran and rollback tran lines to make it happen.

Verify results with select query.
