Alerts - to assign databases instances in the alert definition or through Alert Groups
To me, it seems like creating alerts with no database instances selected and assigning the servers via Alert Groups would be the best option. But are there any alerts that this will not work on? For example, lets say one alert is supported on 2012 and later, but one of my servers is 2008. Or take the Windows Service Not Running alert. That will work across the board as long as the instance name is identical - which will be the case if the installs are all default instance (MSSQLSERVER). But once a named instance is installed then that name within the alert is now different.
