In order to set up anomaly detection/alerting for these Log Events would need to be configured ( . In a future version of the extension, there will be the option to ingest the Triggered Alarms as Dynatrace Events (similar to this API  -


we are getting this error from logs file after installation of VMWARE Extension

('Certificate Status on Datacenters',) Certificate Status on Datacenters is in red status.  But when we checked all certificates in vcenter and there are no issues. 

How do we identify the issue

Any feedback we are receiving, Content: ('Certificate Status on Datacenters',) Certificate Status on Datacenters is in red status. Location: Datacenters

However the vcenter.alarm.triggered_time says  2022-11-29 19:06:03  (over 2 years old)
Any inputs on why we are receiving these old errors?
