Cannot disable alarms

Jump to solution

Running vsphere5.1, esxi5.1 have a vm that continues to show an alarm error from a previous engineer that I cannot edit what so ever. When I double click any of the definition alarms I cannot edit them for example "Virtual machine cpu usage" this engineer has his email in this definition and we do not have smtp relay setup and it is failing. I want to be able to remove his email account so that I do not see this error any more.

Are you editing the alarm after you select the Alarms> Definitions for your vCenter host (PR-VCENTER)?

It sounds like your vCenter Server is a VM.   You still need to edit the alarm at the vCenter level rather than at the VM level (even for this VM).
