OS Service Monitoring : How to exclude some OS services from being monitored on some servers

Hi Community,

We have a policy in place at the HostGroup level which monitors a list of OS Services on our Windows Servers.
On 1-2 servers, we do not want to monitor those OS Services.

Does anyone know how to do this? Any help would be appreciated 🙂
##########################################
Here are some details of our setup in our Dynatrace Managed environment:

##########################################
In Host Groups/*/Setting/OS services monitoring, we setup
a policy to monitor the OS Services with detection rules similar to these:
1- : Startup Type matches $not($eq(disabled))
2- : Service Name matches $or($contains(Domino Server),$contains(DominoServer))
There is an option to also add rules based on Host metadata, but I have not figured out how to use it yet.
For now, I tried this as a 3rd detection rule:
3- Host: Custom metadata Detected name matches $not($eq(hostname_placeholder))

Hi,

I have just not test it, but maybe creating same rule, in host level, with flag disabled?

Hi Anton,
Your suggestion worked.
At Host Group level, I had this in my policy

At Host level, I added this policy which is the same, except that is has the "Alert" button disabled

As, a result the problem that was open from the HostGroup OS:Services policy, is now closed.

Thanks for your help.
