HP SIM 5.1 Tape Drive Alerts

I'm constanly getting trival alerts about my DLT 20/40 GB Tape Drive needs to be cleaned. Can I disable Tape Alert Events at the Server or at the HP SIM Server?

Re: HP SIM 5.1 Tape Drive Alerts

I have struggled with this one for years and never found a solution other than to disable the storage alerts in the HP Agents applet in the Control Panel (At least I think that fixed it - but it's been a while). But that also disabled disk alerts, which was bad, so I turned it back on.

Not to say it cannot be done, but I have never found a way to do it.

Re: HP SIM 5.1 Tape Drive Alerts

There is one more thing you might try that I have done in the past. If you know which Mib and trap it is, go to Options, Events, SNMP Trap Setting. Find the correct Mib and select the trap, and at the dropdown box that says Enable Trap Handling, set this to No. I have done this with the critical software notification and it has worked great.
