VMware vCenter 6 Alarms
Posted on 2016-10-19
I recently upgraded to vCenter 6 U2 (windows) and now I'd like to configure the Alarms. This is a global infrastructure with a single vCenter and as such I would like to configure alarms for each datacenter to be sent to that respective site's team. Being in the US i don't care about items in UK or Asia so I do not want to configure everything at the root of vCenter so every team gets everything. This will simply flood peoples inboxes and things will go unnoticed.
It appears that with vCenter 6 you can only configure alarms where they are defined, which is at the root of vCenter by default. How can i configure the Datacenter Alarms in my vCenter to go to different teams without defining all the alarms (by copying) to each Datacenter site?
