Is there a way in MMS to define an alert to monitor the case where none of the servers in a cluster get promoted to primary?

I tried defining the following alert: 'Alert if host of type primary is down', but the alarm doesn't get fired when I manually shutdown the servers in my cluster (to simulate a cluster going really bad).

Any suggestions?
