Did you go to the source of the Alarm in vCenter and right click and clear? I don't know if restarting the management agents will do anything since the alarms were triggered as vCenter detected something and you'll need to ack the alarm within vCenter.

Alarms are defined in Inventory - Templates & VM view - and applied to "Production Folder". If i go back to produciton folder and right click, there is NO option to clear.
