Back using Solarwinds after a few years. I see a lot of improvements in 2019.04 but this one is wrecking my head. We are monitoring a VMware estate with the NPM agent and VMM. A common scenario:
This now keeps triggering alerts against a now ghost disk size 😐 This seems increbilty poor design if this is indeed a default aspect of the product still.
Thanks in advance guys.
If you rediscover the node does this still stay this way? Click on rediscover under node details for then node then list the resources and make sure only the current disks are selected. This can also be automated but you can test it this way.
Just tested and only option appear to be to do as the KB article I linked suggested. This is quite horrible. Why can the system not track the disk ? Disk expansion on Vms would have to be one of the most common admin tasks out there. Also, why does the disk get a new serial number? Makes no sense 😐
