Examples of some events that can occur are:

  • Appliance was set as an AMS

  • Appliance was added to the AMS

  • Packages were added to the repository

  • Packages were deleted from the repository

  • Upgrade has started

  • Upgrade is complete

  • Upgrade has failed

  • Preflight check has started

  • Preflight check is complete

  • Preflight check has failed

  • EEB installation has started

  • EEB installation is complete

  • EEB installation has failed

  • User password was changed

  • Access key was regenerated

  • Access key could not be regenerated

  • AMS update has started (<package name>)

  • AMS update is complete (<package name>)

  • AMA update has started (<package name>)

  • AMA update is complete (<package name>)


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:
