Known Issues

  • When a Protection Group or a Recovery Plan is removed, the associated alarms, if any, do not disappear

    When a Protection Group or a Recovery Plan is removed, the associated alarms, if any, do not disappear. The alarms are visible under All alarms in the UI. This does not affect the health of the Site Recovery Manager Site. It is calculated correctly.

    Workaround: Delete the alarms manually.
