In the Monitoring task area on the Alerts tab, alerts can be grouped by Protection Group, Computer, Status, or Severity. You can use the Details pane to find more information about a particular alert. The details for each alert vary, depending on the specific conditions that generated the alert and the type of alert selected.

For example, the details for an active “Free tape threshold reached” alert include information such as Affected area, Occurred since, Recommended action, and Description. By contrast, the details for a "Recovery success" information alert also include Resolution, which provides a link to manually resolve the alert if needed.

In the Event log, a separate node called DPM Alerts is created. This contains some text in encrypted form and is not for the administrator's use. Instead, the DPM 2007 Management Pack pack uses this to show DPM Alerts in its user interface.

To display alert details

  1. In DPM Administrator Console, click Monitoring on the navigation bar, and then click the Alerts tab.

  2. Select the alert for which you want more details. The alert information is displayed in the Details pane.
