Event Setup page


The Event Setup page displays the list of events that are disabled, and provides information such as the associated object type and severity of the event. You can also perform tasks such as disabling or enabling events globally.

You can access this page only if you have the Application Administrator or Storage Administrator role.

Command buttons

The command buttons enable you to perform the following tasks for selected events:

  • Disable

    Launches the Disable Events dialog box, which you can use to disable events.

  • Enable

    Enables selected events that you had chosen to disable previously.

  • Upload Rules

    Launches the Upload Rules dialog box, which enables sites with no external network access to manually upload the Active IQ rules file to Unified Manager. The rules are run against cluster AutoSupport messages to generate events for system configuration, cabling, best practice, and availability as defined by the Active IQ platform.

  • Subscribe to EMS Events

    Launches the Subscribe to EMS Events dialog box, which enables you to subscribe to receive specific Event Management System (EMS) events from the clusters that you are monitoring. The EMS collects information about events that occur on the cluster. When a notification is received for a subscribed EMS event, a Unified Manager event is generated with the appropriate severity.

List view

The List view displays (in tabular format) information about events that are disabled. You can use the column filters to customize the data that is displayed.

  • Event

    Displays the name of the event that is disabled.

  • Severity

    Displays the severity of the event. The severity can be Critical, Error, Warning, or Information.

  • Source Type

    Displays the source type for which the event is generated.
