In Depth Information
On the Alerts tab you have the option to manually mark an alert as inactive. You
can do this by right-clicking on the alert and choosing Inactivate alert . Doing this
will make the alert inactive and mark the protected object as OK. Marking an alert
as inactive is a bad practice and should not be done unless absolutely necessary.
This will make the error or warning go away without actually fixing the problem.
By default when you ix an error or warning, the alert will automatically become
inactive and the protection object will be marked as OK.
The Jobs task area contains all the information on your DPM jobs. This includes jobs
that are currently in progress, failed jobs, scheduled jobs that will run in the future,
and past jobs that were successful or failed. Within the jobs tab you can also see what
jobs are running or scheduled for protected computer(s), protection group(s), how
long past jobs ran for, and resources that were used for the job. On the jobs tab you
can right-click on any running or scheduled job and chose cancel to stop the job from
running. If a job fails and you want to know why it failed, you can click on that job
and in the Details screen you will see more information about why this job failed.
You can also filter the list of jobs that are displayed. You can filter on these various
options: job status, job, protection group, or computer.
