Hope all is well,
Brief description of what we have setup and what I am trying to do. We have a number of interfaces that show up in all active alerts as interface is down. However, these interfaces are failover and will continue to be in down status as long as the main interface stays up. I would like to clear them from the active alerts page but do not want to interrupt the monitoring of the main interfaces. Sadly, I am having a difficult time figuring the process out.
The out-of-box interface is down alert is what I have enabled currently. We would need to know when an actual interface that is up, triggers to down but I need to separate the failover interface's into its own alert. If that makes sense.
I have grouped the failover interfaces but haven't quite figured out the next step.
Any advice or direction would be greatly appreciated.
*edit* My initial idea was to setup a group and add all of the failover interfaces in that group. Then setup an alert for that group specifically to alert if any of those interfaces come up. In theory, the alert page should show the main interface down and the failover group up. This may not be the best practice for this but this was my theory at this point.
