Funny thing happened....I upgraded BESX to BESX v4.0.3, had to redo my BES Alert config...seems to be a normal thing now.
While testing my BESAlert settings (stopped SQL server, and some other services) I generated over 300 alert messages. Never saw that many messages generated before. Also my logs were growing very quickly during that time. I attempted to purge all the pending messages, removed the BESAlert settings...but the they were still being generated....very strange I thought. I did a total shutdown and restart.
The messages stopped...I redid the BESAlert settings and it has been normal ever since.
