    Alarm action triggering on Green->Red but not Red-Green

    RMatPGW Lurker

      Our alarm 'Host connection and power state' is getting triggered at least once a week due to networking issues. The alarm action is to send an email for all most state changes (yellow-red, red->yellow, yellow-green). The strange thing is we only get an email alert for when it turns red. The object turns back to green and the logs say that the alarm has gone back to green, but the alarm never sends us the email

       

      e.g.

       

      Alarm 'Host connection and power state' on xxxx changed from Green to Red 13/04/2014 7:08:58 p.m.

      Alarm 'Host connection and power state' on xxxx triggered an action 13/04/2014 7:08:58 p.m.

      Alarm 'Host connection and power state' on xxxx sent email to (our email address) 13/04/2014 7:09:30 p.m.

      Established a connection 13/04/2014 7:13:55 p.m. xxxx

      Alarm 'Host connection and power state' on xxxx changed from Red to Green 13/04/2014 7:13:55 p.m.
