Question:

On old releases of the cisco_ucs probe, you could see a fault paragraph, to display all alarms with their UCS  "Fault Code". How can we get this information back into the alarm messages?

 

Here's the list of the Fault Codes that I am referring to:

Environment:
Any newer Cisco_UCS probe version
Answer:

You need to select the correct "message token" for the "Event" - "EventWarning", to display correct information about the UCS fault in the alarm message.  

 Here is a screenshot on the change you need to make in the probe configuration in IM:

Once changed, you should see the information about fault with fault code from Cisco UCS in alarm.
