When you update the 3.1.1 AMS to version 1.2 by using the management update package, you may see the event AMS upgrade has started on the Monitor > Events page. This is incorrect and it should say AMS update instead of AMS upgrade.
On completion of the update, another event is logged: AMS update is complete. This event correctly describes the event as AMS update.
Each event is attached to a specific host (AMS or agent) and has a severity. The event severity can be one of the following:
Information about normal system operation
Indicates problems where immediate intervention is required. It may indicate that one or more operations have failed.
Alerts you about a condition that may cause an error.
You can search for the UMI code column (Unique Message Identifier) on the Support site to learn more about the event. Visit the Support site at:
