how to disable a single drive showing as down in a sensor for multiple drives



I have a server that has multiple drives (3 total) however, 1 drive is used for an application that uses the entire disk (this 0MB Free) and I'd like to do one of the following: - Adjust multi-disk sensor so that sensor limits do not apply to the one disk/channel in question.
- Remove the one disk from the multi-disk sensor all together.
- Setup a multi-disk sensor that include only the other 2 drives.

you can disable the Limits for all drives on the Settings-tab of this sensor. Then go into the Channels-tab, there you can:

  • Disable the Channels for "the unwanted drive" from being displayed in data tables & graphs
  • set limits for the other drives again

best regards.
