I have just installed SCOM and it is monitoring a subset of the Windows servers that we have installed.
There is one rule which is generating alerts which is giving me a little trouble: NTFS - Delayed Write Lost
This is being caused by VMware and our backup solution. All of the machines that are being monitored are VMware virtual machines running on either ESXi 5.5 or 6. They are being backed up by Commvault which generating a quiesced snapshot and backing up the snapshot. While the snapshot is being generated, Windows is generating these events which are being tracked by SCOM. This appears to be a known issue and VMware are doing nothing about it. See here: VMware Site
Since I can't do anything about the warning being generated, I would instead like to suppress the rule while the snapshot is being taken instead. Unfortunately, overrides in SCOM appear to be binary; the rule is either enabled or it isn't. I don't want to disable a rule like that, under any other circumstances a failed delayed write could be a serious matter.
Looking at the event logs on the server, the alert never seems to appear more than 10-15 times in the space of a few seconds. Can SCOM be set to not notify on that rule unless it appears more than X times over Y amount of time? Failing that, can it be set to suppress the rule during the backup window?
Would appreciate any advice :)
