Issues notification from Health Analyzer – SharePoint 2010

December 3rd, 2009 Comments off

In my previous post I discussed something about Health analyzer in SharePoint 2010. When health analyzer finds some issues against the pre-defined rules. It shows notifications on the Central Admin screen. This notification bar will look like this. If there is any error then this bar color will be Red, if these are just warnings then it will be yellow.

Red Notification for errors

Errors notification in red bar.

Yellow Notification for warnings

Warnings notification in yellow bar.

When you click on view these issues, it will take you to the health report page. From there you can see the details of each issue and can edit the item as well. If you think that these issues are coming against unnecessary problem. Then you can also change the rule definitions by disabling or removing it from the Health Analyzer list. For this you can read my previous post about Health Analyzer.
There could be unnecessary issue notifications, like I’m running SharePoint 2010 on my hp laptop and it was giving me low disk space error for recovery disk. So I just remove this error from the list.

Health Report

And here you can see the screenshot of the details page when you click on any of the issue. If you think you have fixed the issue, then you can reanalyze it as well to remove this error from this report. 

Review problems and solutions

Here you can also change the severity of the item. It will give you all the details about the issue, server name where this issue occurred. It will also tell you failing service and some description for the item. Now you may like to remove this from rule definition. On this screen you can see the category name and then you can find this rule from the rule definitions list under this category. The interest section is remedy, where it will gives you some idea about the problem and solution for it. Isn’t that amazing thing from Microsoft?

Have fun.

Health Analyzer in SharePoint 2010

One of the amazing features in SharePoint 2010 is Health analyzer. Health analyzer is working through the timer jobs and collect data from these jobs. This data is saved in logging database and logging folder. These health analyzing jobs are configurable. You can reschedule, enable, disable, or run immediately.
By default these jobs are running against some pre-defined rules. These rules are in belongs to different categories like Security, Performance, Configuration, and Availability. If you go in Central Administration and click on Monitoring.


 On monitoring page there are two options under Health Analyzer section. ‘Review problems and solutions’ is to take you to a page displaying all the current issues and ‘Review Rule definitions’ will open the page with existing rules.
On this page you can see that when these rules are schedule to analyze, enabled or disabled, and if repair automatically is selected or not. From this screen you can also remove any existing rules.

Health Analyzer Rule Definitions

When you click on any item it open a dialog window with the properties of the rule. On this dialog you can change settings for selected rule.
Selected Rule

Here you can change the Scope for rule. In Scope you define the server to run the timer job. It could be just one server or can be set to ‘All Servers’ in farm. Then you can change the schedule for rule. Then you can enable or disable the rule and also can set the property for Repair Automatically. If you set this property to yes, then SharePoint 2010 will try to resolve the problem for you. I don’t really know that SharePoint 2010 can resolve all the problems. But you can give it a try for basic things. As we have these rule definitions as a SharePoint list, so version is actually telling the version of the list item.
