Working with System Alarms

Warning- or Error-level events on a system trigger an audible alarm, a series of beeps which sound every five minutes (or 300 seconds) until the event is resolved.

The alarm is enabled by default, but can be disabled on any system, if required. You can also change the frequency and duration of the alarm.

Note: A system alarm is not the same as a controller alarm. For controller alarm information, see Working with Controllers.

To change alarm settings on a system:

  1. In the Enterprise View, select a system.
  2. On the ribbon, in the System group, click System Settings.

    The maxView Storage Manager Agent Settings window opens. The alarm settings are circled in the next figure.

  3. Edit the alarm settings, as needed. You can disable the system alarm by deselecting Sound Alarm.
  4. Click OK. The changes take effect immediately.
