Disable monitoring of Array Batteries

  • We have a few servers that either have the array batteries have failed or we removed them. These are older non-critical servers and are scheduled for replacement over the next year or two. Is there a way to configure OME or OMSA to ignore/disable the monitoring of the Array Batteries.

    Thanks,

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the query.

    For more understanding from OME perspective:

    1. Server shows critical health condition and you want OME to ignore that and show it normal (green)?

    2. You don't want the server to show up in OME at all even after scheduled scans on IP ranges?

    Thanks,

  • I still want to monitor the server, I just would like to not monitor a specific item. I know I can go into SNMP Traps under Alert Management in Server Administrator and uncheck Batteries. Is that for all batteries in the server including the Array controller? I only want to stop monitoring the Array Battery in these few systems. If it cannot be done that's ok.

  • SNMP Traps are more about sending alerts to OME. That does not have any impact on the inventory details OME pulls from the server. All inventory details are captured from discovered servers, right now there is no way to exclude or ignore specific component.

    Thanks,
