Configuring VOM for helpful status messages?
I came in this morning and fired up my VOM web interface, to be greeted by a slew of happy green bars. I went about my morning routine until I got an email from a user asking if EV was down again.
I checked VOM, still green. I was about to respond to the user that all was good, then thought better of it and checked my server's VCS Java console. Lo and behold, I had 2 servers with service groups completely offline.
Apparently, there was a reboot that took place over the weekend and those 2 nodes didn't auto-restart. However, since nothing had faulted, VOM reported nothing out of the ordinary.
All this background to ask if there's a way to get VOM to report when a service group that is expected to be online isn't? I have the ability to check the Java console (even though I shouldn't have to), but once I turn over monitoring to the Help Desk, I can't have them checking 2 or 3 places for a true status.
