vCenter 5.5 "Datastore Usage" Alarm Issue
In the past, I had several customers with an vCenter alarm issue. The "Datastore Usage" alarm worked fine for a while, e. g. for two weeks. Then the alarm suddenly hung up, which means that the status of the datastores was not actualized anymore. A datastore with a warning continued to show the warning even if space was freed below the configured trigger, and a datastore with status ok continued to show this status even if free storage space was getting low.
