Configure SharePoint Health Analyzer rules (SharePoint Server 2010)

Published: May 12, 2010

This topic describes how to configure SharePoint Health Analyzer rules.

note Note:

You can use only Central Administration to configure SharePoint Health Analyzer rules.

Configuring health rules

You can accept the default settings for each health rule, or you can change settings for a health rule by using Central Administration.

To configure health rules by using Central Administration

  1. Verify that the user account that is performing this procedure is a member of the Farm Administrators group.

  2. In Central Administration, on the Home page, click Monitoring.

  3. On the Monitoring page, under Health Analyzer, click Review rule definitions.

  4. On the Health Rule Definitions page, click the rule that you want to configure.

  5. In the Health Analyzer Rule Definitions dialog, click Edit Item.

  6. Edit one or more rule fields, and then click Save.

    To leave the rule unchanged, either dismiss the dialog or click Cancel.

Each health rule has configurable fields, which are described in the following table.

Configurable Field Possible Values

Title

The name of the health rule. You can rename a health rule to clarify its functionality. The title is the name of the rule as it appears in the Health Rule Definitions list In Central Administration.

Changing the title does not affect how the rule runs.

Scope

You can set a health rule to run against all servers or any server. If set to any server, the rule will run on the first available server that the system encounters.

Schedule

You can schedule a health rule to run hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, or on demand only.

Enabled

You can use this to enable or disable a health rule.

Repair Automatically

You can define whether a health rule automatically tries to recover from any error conditions that it finds. If this option is selected, SharePoint Server 2010 will repair errors as soon as they are found, as defined by the rule.

note Note:

If no repair is specified by the rule, the system does not attempt to repair the problem.

Version

Version history enables you to track the changes performed on each rule. The version number is updated every time the rule is saved. The version number does not affect how the rule behaves.

Each health rule has read-only fields, which are described in the following table.

Read-Only Field Meaning

Version

This current version number of the rule.

Created at

The date and time that the rule was originally created and the user account that created the rule.

Last modified at

The date and time that the rule was last changed and the user account that created the rule.
