You may experience a problem when you are using Performance Logs and Alerts in Computer Management to monitor alerts. If a remote alert does not start because the computer is unavailable, local alerts may no longer start, and you may receive the following error message:
The log or alert name log or alert has not started. Refresh the log or alert list to view current status, or see the application event log for any errors.
The problem may occur if System Monitor continues to try to connect to the remote computer. This blocks the local alerts, which then time out and do not start.
