vCenter Service overall health changed from 'green' to 'red

I received this alarm as datacenter target but how can I know more details?

I don't understand what means OR in the alarm definition because there are twice RED status, 1 GREEN status and 1 YELLOW status

ALARM:

Target: Datacenters

Previous Status: Green

New Status: Red

Alarm Definition:

([Event alarm expression: vCenter Service Overall Health Changed; Status = Red] OR

[Event alarm expression: vCenter Service Overall Health Changed; Status = Green] OR

[Event alarm expression: vCenter Service Overall Health Changed; Status = Red] OR

[Event alarm expression: vCenter Service Overall Health Changed; Status = Yellow])

Event details:

vCenter Service overall health changed from 'green' to 'red'

Did you do any upgrades?  Can you provide some screenshots?

check the vws.log and vpxd, They should have more information on why the alarm is getting triggered.

Hi,

You would not find the logs in the vSphere client, you will find the logs inside the guest os. The below KB should be helpful

VMware KB: Location of vCenter Server log files
