MH shown as At Risk in GUI without supporting Fault/At Risk condition


VOM shows that a Managed Host (MH) is in a Faulted or At Risk state but the Faulted or At Risk condition is not apparent.

Error Message

View of host; status is "At Risk" but fault not apparent.



Fault view filtered by hostname shows fault (At Risk condition) which has been suppressed.







This condition is corrected in VOM HotFix (HF) vom-HF050001960-11.

This patch can be implemented in both versions 4.1 and 5.0 VOM domains.


In the hosts view, the status of the host will now show as "Healthy" to reflect that the underlying fault has been suppressed (unless an unsuppressed fault is detected).
