Notifications oneview

Hi,

I would like to have a notification(by mail) when the scheduled backup is unable to backup to remote location. I have tried a bunch of different filters but no one seems to work.

Can someone help me?

Best,

Sondre

Re: Notifications oneview

What you are looking for is associatedresourcecategory:backups.  In the future, use the Guided radio button to select the category types, then switch it to Advanced to see the syntax.

Hi,

thank you for the answer.

I tried this, then i tried to generate a fake alarm by deleting the folder the remote backup was suppose to download to. Then I get this error "Unable to download backup to remote backup location", but still the filter "the associatedresourcecategory:backups" wouldnt pick up on this and send a mail. 

Do I need to add more alert criteria?

Best,

Sondre

Did you verify the severity isn't omitting Critical in your emial rule?

Re: Notifications oneview

Hi,

I have tried with these combinations (and only these in the filter alone):

1.associatedresourcecategory:backups 

2.alertTypeId:Backup.BackupNotTaken  

3. alertTypeId:Backup.ScheduledBackupNotTaken

Also tried the test email function and that works
