Anyone to help through setting alarm for Host Connection and Power State ?
** for the Host Connection State I believe I can set it to:
Is equal Not responding for Warning and Disconnected for Alert

for Power State:
 I am not sure if this will be the right setting:

Is equal Standby for Warning and Powered off for Alert.

any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Do you use VMware Distributed Power Management  in DRS?

because otherwise you will not see the Standby or Powered off flags set on your ESXi servers.

So these are only applicable if using VMware Distributed Power Management in DRS, to automatically shutdown ESXi servers when not in use, and Start them, when they need the resources.

and if you are using VMware Distributed Power Management  in DRS, do you want Alerts being sent, when they are Shutdown, on Standby, or Power Off?

Both are the correct settings...

Is equal Standby for Warning

 and Powered off for Alert.

but that is intentional...! normally when using VMware Distributed Power Management

Ok I see,,,,
I want to set up an alarm when there is host power issue or battery issue.

as well as network connection issue of the host (if Vcenter cannot connect to ESX, or ESX cannot connect to the switch or  ESX cannot connect to datastore)

Power Issue or Battery Issues, is through your UPS!

ESXi does not know, if it's on power or battery.

Those options are for VMware Distributed Power Management.
