Why is my Alarm on a "VM renamed" event triggered by a drs action....

For management purposes I want to know when some colleague renames a VM in our environment. For this purpose I use a default vcenter alarm which triggers on the event "VM renamed".

The alarm triggers when someone manually renames a VM but the alarm is also triggered when a drs action is completed by the system. Al least that's what I see in the task/event pane.

When I look in the tasks pane I see a couple of seconds before the alarm is triggered the task "DRS migrated VMx from Host X to Host Y in Cluster X". Why triggers this event the "Renaming" alarm?

Cheers,

Wouter

Hi Wouter,

What build numbers / versions does this occur in? I've not seen this before, but it looks interesting ... something that I could try and replicate in my lab?

Cheers,

Jon
