How to Configure Installed Zerto Alarms to Take Actions on Trigger in vCenter

Viewed 377 times


Zerto Virtual Replication has the ability to issue alerts through the vCenter's Alarms feature. The actions triggered by these alarms can be customized by the administrator.  This article will detail how to configure these actions, which include sending an email, a notification trap, or running a command from the vCenter server.


When Zerto is installed, several alarms are created in vCenter. These are visible by selecting the vCenter node in the vSphere client (1), selecting the Alarms tab (2), and then the definitions sub tab (3). All alert definitions will be shown in the table (4).

A complete table containing alarm names and descriptions is available in the Zerto Virtual Replication Administration Guide.

Each alarm can be configured individually so the user may pick and choose which actions to take on which trigger action.

In order to properly set up the triggers for these alert definitions, kindly follow the steps documented in 
VMWare KB article #1018029.
