By default, all predefined alarms are assigned to the root level of the managed infrastructure. Alarms for monitoring the virtual environment apply to the root level of the virtual infrastructure — connected vCenter Server, SCVMM, failover cluster, or host. VCloud Director alarms apply to the root vCloud Director level. Veeam Backup & Replication alarms apply to the root level of the backup infrastructure — connected Veeam Backup & Replication server or Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager.
You can change the alarm assignment scope for predefined and custom alarms, exclude one or more objects from the alarm scope, or even exclude an object from the scope of multiple alarms at once.
