vmware self-monitoring alerts

Hello, in vmware v6.72 we started getting flooded with the "Self-Monitoring Failures for ..." alerts. Can someone explain how do you fix these and what is causing them? 

I know the old alerts in the previous versions used to say "Metric ***. Update not available" but for those we would just go into all monitors under that profile and un-check it from being monitored.


In this 6.72 version that's not fixing it. I also try a combination of clearing the nis-cache then restarting the probe, then trying to remove the static items w/in the probe but again those "Self-Monitoring Failure" alerts are popping up.


Anyone have any suggestions here....
