When trying to configure my alerts for email and alarms i encounter some issues..
So what i do is i have 2 policies configured under "alerts" where one should create an alarm if a server agent has not checked in for 3 minutes, and the other sends an email if an server agent has not checked in for 15 minutes.
Now i have the 3 minute policy as global and the 15 minute email policy on a org.
When i turn off my test server now, i do not get an alarm in monitor alarm summary after 3 minutes, and i do not get an email after 15 minutes. But after exactly 1 hour and 3 minutes i do get an alarm, saying alarm date is 1 hour before it shows up.....
To summarize this, it seems as tho only one of multiple "alert" policies works, and why do i get alarm 1 hours later than alarm date.....
thanks in advance :)
I heard from someone that it is not possible to have multiple "Alerts"...
This is dependent on the alert type you are configuring and the policy conflict rules -- please see below;
