Pinned topic IBM AIX 6.1 errpt events not being picked up in event log

‏2009-01-19T19:17:54Z |
Greetings,

I am running Director 6.1. I have created a simple event filter basically set up to pick up everything from my AIX 6.1 servers. Here are the options I selected:

Event type: Any
Severity: Any
Description: I didn't enter anything in this field.
Day/Time: Any
Category: Any
Sender name: Any (I also tried to specify a particular server)
Event text: Any

I then created an event automation plan, using my newly created event and setting "add to the event log" as the event action, to be run "24/7" and even selected "Apply this event automation plan when I click Finish".

Having done that, I would assume that any event that pop int to errpt should be picked up by Director and put in the event log. This is not the case. I tried forcing an entry in to the errpt log using "errlogger" but nothing shows up in the Director event log. I do get events such as agent stoppped, agent started, user root logged in etc....

Given the described setup I have, should I be able to see entries from my errpt? Or does this just not a function of Director 6.1

Thanks in advance for any feedback,
Dan

    Hi,

    I'm also very interested in this topic. Can anyone tell me how to implement it?

    Thanks!

    It's important to understand exactly what kind of AIX errpt errors show up in IBM Systems Director.

    That Tip says that if the Type is PERM then ISD agent should pick it up.
    But when vdisk loses a path (dual vio), a PERM entry is made in errpt , but ISD agent does not pick it up.

    Any idea why ?
