Monitor Knowledgebase

Summary

This monitor checks the Recovery Model setting for this database. Since this monitor is a part of an overall standards requirement, an alert would be generated if the Recovery Model setting does not meet the specified standard.

BULK_LOGGED and SIMPLE recovery models can result in data loss under some conditions. See the Books On-Line for complete information.

Causes

A warning alert will be raised if the Recovery Model option does not match the required setting. Out of the box, the monitor is configured to alert when this setting is not set to “FULL”.

Resolutions

This issue may be resolved by:

  • Changing the configuration setting for this database to match the expected value.

  • Overriding the expected value for this unit monitor for this specific database or all databases.

Alternatively, if this monitor is not of concern for this database:

  • Disabling the monitor using overrides for this specific database or all databases.

  • Disabling the top-level aggregate configuration monitor using overrides for this specific database or all databases.
