Acknowledging Alarms

You can acknowledge alarms to let other users know that an issue is being investigated or resolved, so no attention is required from their side.

Required Privileges

To perform these tasks, a user must have one of the following roles assigned: Portal Administrator, Site Administrator, Portal Operator.

Acknowledging Alarms

To manually resolve one or more alarms:

  1. Log in to Veeam Service Provider Console.

For details, see Accessing Veeam Service Provider Console.

  1. In the menu on the left, click Active Alarms.

Veeam Service Provider Console will display a list of all triggered alarms.

To narrow down the list of alarms, you can apply the following filters:

  • Alarm — search triggered alarms by name.
  • Status — limit the list of alarms by the alarm status (Resolved, Warning, Error, Information, Acknowledged).
  • Category — limit the list of the alarms by object category (Backup portal, Veeam Cloud Connect, Veeam Backup & Replication (including public cloud backup), Veeam ONE, Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365, Veeam Agent).
  • Scope — limit the list of the alarms by scope (Internal, Managed companies, Resellers).
  • Time Period — limit the list of alarms by the time when alarms were triggered.
  • Site/Reseller/Company/Location — limit the list of alarms by Veeam Cloud Connect site, reseller, company and location for which alarms were triggered. To limit the list of alarms by site, reseller, company and location, use filters at the top left corner of the Veeam Service Provider Console window.

  1. Select the necessary alarms in the list.
  2. At the top of the alarm list, click Acknowledge Alarm.

Alternatively, you can right-click the necessary alarm and choose Acknowledging Alarm.

  1. In the Acknowledge Alarm window, specify a comment about acknowledging the alarm.


To acknowledge the alarm for managed companies, select the Acknowledge alarm in the client's portal check box.
