Known issues

Return to top

'Server configuration has changed' and 'Server configuration differs from baseline' alerts not triggered in SCM
Issue: 'Server configuration has changed' and 'Server configuration differs from baseline' alerts are not triggered in SCM after profiles are assigned and then re-assigned to the same node.
Resolution/Work-around: Restart the Orion Alerting Service to begin triggering these alerts again. The workaround for this issue is documented in the following KB article: 'Server configuration has changed' and 'Server configuration differs from baseline' alerts not triggered in SCM.

 

SCM configuration in PerfStack is not showing in the PerfStack resource summary view
Issue: SCM is set up to monitor for changes. User creates a PerfStack view to track SCM changes over time. When the PerfStack profile is added as a resource in a summary view, it is missing the SCM-specific charts.
Resolution/Work-around: None
