Veeam VMware: Inventory Health Alarm

Previous page Next page Print this Topic

Table of contents

This monitor tracks the vCenter Inventory Health Alarm.

By default, the alarm is triggered by the following event:

vim.event.HealthStatusChangedEvent: Health status of the Inventory Service changed.

Inventory Service is responsible for maintaining vCenter inventory database which contains information and metadata from all systems managed by the vCenter Server. Inventory Service failure may cause issues with locating hardware and virtual instances in the vSphere Client, as well as issues with updating inventory and hardware information for ESX hosts.

Check whether the Inventory Service is running. If the service is stopped, try starting it again. For more information on stopping, starting, or restarting VMware vCenter Server 6.0 services, see this VMware KB article. If the Inventory Service health status is still not GREEN, try resetting the VMware vCenter Server Inventory Service database; for more information, see this VMware KB article.
