If you are using VDP in your environment you will probably from time to time see a need for disk consolidation on some of your VM's. It's not an problem but here is a quick setup how to define an alarm action on this type of problem with Email notification:
- create new alarm in your datacenter with this settings:
>>> Alarm name: something logical
>>> Alarm type: Monitor for specific events occuring on this object...
>>> Enable this alarm - checked
>>> Triggers tab - Add --> com.vmware.vc.VmDiskFailedToConsolidateEvent, status Warning
>>> Actions tab - Send a notification email with settings for "From normal to warning".
Next time you will be notified on provided mails about disk consolidation needs...
