This is useful when deploying software updates that will impact an application that is being monitored by Operations Manager. Disabling alerts while the update is being installed will prevent alerts from triggering, such as a service that is stopped, as a result of the update installation. By default, this setting is not enabled.

Generate Operation Manager alert when a software update installation fails
