About this task

If an object from the Metasys N1 Network has an alarm attached to the object when the object is imported to the Metasys system, then the object has a corresponding Alarm extension in Metasys system.

Note: You can configure pre-alarms for your MVE system by creating additional alarm extensions. Remove the extra alarm objects and any GPL processes you configured in the old NCM, and configure the Status attribute as a pre-alarm condition.


  1. Click New in the Alarm row of the Extensions Wizard. The Insert Alarm Wizard Select Attribute screen appears.
  2. Click other to show the list of attribute options.
  3. Select an object to which you want to add the Alarm extension (in the top half of the screen) and select an attribute (in the bottom half of the screen), then click Next.
