Changing Alarm Assignment Scope
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. VMware Cloud Director alarms apply to the root VMware Cloud 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. Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 alarms apply to the connected Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 server.
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.
